Anyway, at the time, I thought it was a great illustrative catalog that could be of benefit to owners of old homes desiring to replicate the appropriate vintage look around their homes. Recently, I have thought that some of the catalog ideas could be used around heirloom vegetable gardens also.
The catalog was not selling outdoor furniture rather it displayed an item then gave a (sorta) building material list of lumber sizes needed for a woodworking project to complete the item pictured. In 1928 home and local carpenters were more prolific in the local community. This was the days when "industrial already made" outdoor furniture was still in its early stage.
Below is a representative gallery from the seventy-six black and white photos featured in the catalog. I would be glad to provide anyone with a list of building materials from the catalog for any of the items below; just ask for the list in the comment section. They are rather sparse lists.
no material list available
