I found this in an old trade publication for florists and I thought it would amuse the shroomers here on Permies.  The art is so old (1885) that it's public domain, so maybe some one of you will have a use for it; but mostly I'm just putting it here for the amusement value.

Cool. I had been left with the idea that it was strictly a new thing.  Invented by a bunch of weirdos in the 1960's. Like computers.

I sorta thought that way too, without ever really having concentrated on thinking about it.  But no!
