This is an interesting catalog of vintage auto camping supplies. I am going to attempt to show the whole catalog. so if it does not work out, I tried. There seems to have been some interest in some earlier posts, about camping supplies for the T era. There are 52 pages, so here we go ...
swell Donnie, thanks for the effort. i want one of those jittney seats for the wife to ride in. hang it on the back so i would hear less wimpering
Clayton, I like the "brass knuckles" as a camp supply. Times must have really been tough back then ..
I still have my Optimus traveling stove, that I got as a gift for my confirmation in 1955. It is exactly as described in this catalog. I think my dad used it more than I did, as he "needed" his "coffee fix" on the road. We carried a coffee pot, a water can, ground coffee and sugar cubes, so when weather permitted, we enjoyed our rest stops along the road. After I got my T a couple of years later, I used it too, as well as tent, sleeping bags and a set of aluminum cooking utensils.
This is fabulous! Thank you so much for posting this.
How very kind of you to take the time to load that to the forum ...
I will chip in $5.00 for you to buy anything you want from the catalog ....
Great job, thanks for taking the time to post this!
Donnie's post shows that if there is a limit to the number of pictures that can be embedded in a single post, the limit is way up there.
Here are some pictures of the items in use on the Model T Forum:
Royce, thanks for the link to the camping pics. I always like to see the camping from back in the day. The hardest part of this project was the "resizing of the pics" I could resize them as a "batch resize" but they all came out a little different in sizes and displayed differently. So I ended up resizing them one at a time to get them fairly close to the 200 limit. Clayton: the "jitney seats" are made to "hang on a door" That probably would not fly today, looks like a "law suit" waiting to happen ...
Donnie! you did a great job with that book how about copying my book for me. 1920 hardware book.8+10 4" thick,2946 pages.if its is not in there you don't need it.lol. charley
I never realized that brass knuckles qualified as camping supplies (page 40)!
Donnie, that was a lot of work. Thanks for all of your efforts.
Just curious - does anyone have any of the items in the catalog that they can post pictures of the items?
Awesome, love it. Now i need to scan the parts catalogs I have so they can be posted for others to drool over
I have considered making a lumbar support, but it just seems very non-period correct. Oh, I see now how wrong I am! Page 47 has Easybak Cushions. I'd order a Style No. 1. except they only come is brown or gray Slip cover Fabric or Imitation Leather.
Does the Style 1L (leather ) come in black? If so, I'd like one, please...
Thanks for sharing, Donnie!
: ^ )
Just a quick look of the items, I have 14 of them...
