The Sears mail order catalogue is something of an American institution. At least that's how I understand it from down here in Australia. I'm not sure we had anything quite like it here. The thick toy catalogues from Toy World or Uncle Pete's were great at sale time but I don't think they compared to these.
|The Little Professor calculator! I still have mine somewhere.|
|Our brother definitely had a parking garage very similar to this one.|
|I spotted a mini record player on this page, just like the one my aunt and uncle had when I was a kid.|

Wishbooks' photostream contains catalogues dating from the 1940s up to about 1996 so there is something for almost everyone to reminisce about. Thanks go to the person who scanned all these pages in for everyone to see. I'm not sure who they are but I enjoyed the memories.
