    Central Camera Company catalog ca. 1936

    See here:

    Pretty cool, I'd say. I don't own any of the cameras shown in that catalog, but it's amazing to see just how much a Leica costs in those days. Over $200 bucks! That's a veritable fortune!

    Thanks really cool catalogue. It's always interesting to see information like this in the past. You can easily draw parallels to today's camera catalogs from vendors like BH or adorama with the large variations of size and shape of cameras. The advertising style and accompanying text defines that period as well.
