Scarce interwar Melbourne trade catalogue for a firm that offered a huge variety of homewares, games and novelties – in fact, a cornucopia of knick-knacks, gadgets, do-it-yourself medical appliances and other things you wouldn’t really need. Shops of this type still abound in Melbourne today, of course.
