Here is an interesting and informative old ‘how-to’ (billed as a ‘movie’) on planting and caring for irises. The illustrations and text are from the 1932 issue of Sunset Magazine, The Pacific Monthly, and is oriented toward western gardens. The author of the piece is not credited, not is the illustrator.
