Don’t forget the crab apple

In the spring of 1958, Mrs. Kaplan of Medina apparently decided her yard needed a little sprucing up. After spending $31.00 cash at Strander Nurseries in South Seattle, no doubt her place looked lovely with the addition of peach, plum, cherry and crab apple trees.

I found an inflation converter online which determines that 31.00 in 1958 is the equivalent of 230.00 in 2009. Puts the 5.00 trees in a little better perspective!

That *is* a chunk of change!
