Of general interest to people like myself who like to see what was available in that era. Historical value. Lovely to just dip into, and find out the availability of "stuff" and it's price.

Not as good as the Gammages volume which is likely unavailable now.

I bought this book for an odd reason - I own a copy of the original catalogue and have been slowly scanning parts of it and putting it on line. When I heard that it was actually available as a reprint I decided to buy a copy and find out if I've been wasting my time. I was initially a little sceptical because the page count given for it by Amazon is wrong - as well as the numbered pages the original volume has seventy pages of prefaces, contract terms, indexes, etc.

It turns out that it does include everything; I suspect someone has checked the last page number and given that as the total page count, without realising that there is a ton of introductory stuff.

Reproduction is very good - so good that the publisher must have started out with a really clean copy and taken it apart to scan individual pages without any distortion. Reproduction of some illustrations is marginally poorer than the originals, but certainly good enough for any purpose I can readily imagine.

In short, this is a very nice book, and a gold-mine for anyone interested in the world of the 1930s-40s. I can thoroughly recommend it.

My wife and I are 1940's re-enactors, we were told about this book and had to have one. For anyone with an interest in the 40's, retail, shops, just about everything you could buy at the time, and I mean everything, is listed in this book in its 1126 pages. When you pick it up, it is very difficult to put back down. The title does not do it justice, though that is the name of the shop.
This was my first purchase from Amazon, very impressed with the fast delivery and such a bargain too.
