Early Advertising and the West

This digital collection "consists of over 450 print advertisements published in local magazines, city directories, and theater pamphlets from 1867 to 1918. These advertisements were selected and digitized in order to help researchers and students examine social, cultural and economic trends during this period." Includes an essay, brief bibliography, and sample searches (such as fashion and Klondike Gold Rush). From University of Washington Libraries Digital Collections.
