Home by Mail Order

This ad came from the 1913 edition of the Eatons Catalogue. I'm sure I've seen design 61 before somewhere around the Stampede grounds. Of course it is gone now.

My friend bought a cedar cabin kit off the Internet a few years ago. What has really changed? I'm sure she was just as excited as the person who bought one of these homes from a catalogue 100 years ago. Technology has changed the medium of advertisement but the human side of the equation has not. I'm glad.
