I have a trike similar to the one in the upper left corner. Helps to date it.
Haven't seen the catalog , thanks for posting

Based on the =CRAFTSMAN= logo, I'd guess 1948,49, or 50. Never seen one with a plain cover like that.

I've never seen one of those either, but I agree on late 1940s to early 1950s.

And that's a bit surprising given the use of "velocipede"!! Did anyone really call tricycles velocipedes in 1950?!

I'm not reading as much as I use it. Help with arthritis wondering Nanjing well yet.
