|Montgomery Ward Fairview, 1917 catalog|
|The Thornton/Wolicki field guide to Montgomery Ward mail-order homes, is still available at a reasonable price from the authors, here (you can find it on Amazon or eBay for inflated prices). Though it's out of print, there are still copies available from the final printing. The 1917 Book of Homes catalog, from Montgomery Ward, shown here on the right, is viewable online, at this Archive.org link.|
If you're interested in seeing more Montgomery Ward and Wardway-era house catalogs, you'll find a list on this blog page of mine, where I've provided links to all of the online catalogs that we're aware of, for Sears, Montgomery Ward, Gordon-Van Tine, and other companies. Noted researcher Rebecca L. Hunter has a good little write-up on her Kithouse.org website, as well.
