My Grandma’s lovely friend Joy (the awesome vintage finder) found this Catalogue and thought my dad might like it. I quickly snapped it up for me. Not for the content, but for the design and layout.
Design with computers is a fair bit different to what it was in the 50s and I just love the 1950s style. This is a booklet for caravan and trailer components, so the content may not be that fascinating but I love the mixture of hand drawn and the different type they have used.
I love the map and directions in the front cover and how it shows the tram route to get to it. I also thought that the last picture with it’s ‘Dual Purpose Trailer’ that can be for your car or your horse! was pretty cool!
I’m sure I’ll use this for design inspiration in the future. I think it’s great that these things survive so that new generations can see what things were like.
