no plans 19 Mar 2013
By ginmar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I love looking at floor plans from this era, so I have something of an addiction to books about the mail-order house genre.
This is the first such book that has disappointed me. No real plans----except for one in a reproduced ad-----and the information is scanty and recycled. The book goes to 821 "locations."
