The Marshal and the Madam Podcast Episode 12: Cost of Goods on the Frontier

In this episode Sherry and Marshall explore the cost of goods on the frontier. They’ll share some comparisons of today’s money versus the value of the dollar in the 1800s.

They discuss how much people earned, what is cost to run a Kansas farm, mail-order catalogs, and the amount it cost to shop for every day items. This show’s lagniappe is a recipe for escalloped tomatoes.
