1893 James J.H. Gregory catalog


 


Most seed dealers prefer to highlight the end results of their seed production with images of beautiful flowers and large, perfect vegetables. However, several seed dealers included images of their seed fields. The two most commonly shown were fields of carrots with their beautiful Queen Anne's Lace flowers, and onions. James J. H. Gregory of Marblehead, Massachusetts thought to show his customers the beauty of a large onion seed field in bloom, "one of six" as proudly noted in the catalog.
