It may be hard to believe in these modern days, but in Dixon's early days of a hardscrabble farming community, the Baker and Hamilton catalog was a very hot item with the working farmers. The women got the Sears and Roebuck catalog while the men took the Baker and Hamilton catalog with them to the outhouse.

 

To give you the flavor of the 1883 rural Dixon era, we present the entire Baker and Hamilton farm implement catalog. For your information, Baker and Hamilton started business in 1849 and is still a player although these days it is better known for its Napa Cabernet Sauvignon.
