Fitzgerald Bros Catalogue

It was all too much for me - I had to go and get the catalogue from work. This is the cover:


and there are some sample pages HERE and HERE.

I was talking about this catalogue the other day - we are looking at options how to reproduce it on a CD, and sell copies to raise money to preserve the textiles collection. It is a mail-order catalogue from Melbourne (our state capital) for Spring and Summer 1906-1907. It is exactly a hundred years old, right now.
