Army & Navy Stores Ltd General Price List 1939-40 [Hardcover]
Take yourself back in time to Britain before the Second World War. This reproduction of the 1939 Army & Navy Stores Catalogue illustrated perfectly the products and the lifestyle of Great Britain at the outset of the conflict. Absolutely everything was available from table and bracket gongs, refrigerator's, pails and racks, home movie and talkie projectors to gentleman's fitted dressing cases and officer's full dress uniforms.
This very large and original price list and catalogue represents all that could be purchased at one of the most famous of the London Stores in the late 1930s. There are 1127pps and the black on red boards measure 20cms x 25.5cms (8" x 10") so this is a heavy book and note should be taken of our postal rate.
