Here is a link to several Plomb & Proto catalogs from the '30s, '40s, and '50s.

Anyone else having a problem with that site?  I've tried to look at the 1954 cat a couple times and it has frozen my computer both times.

I don't have problems opening them, but, you folks are aware that those catalogs are **very large** right?

Thanks Frank. Those are great catalogs.

 Did anyone notice the 9999 four drawer toolchest that weighs 93 lbs empty! That was one buffed hombre that hoisted that thing full of tools into his service truck.

 Does anyone know what bartlett street.com is? I tried it and got one photo of two guys standing in front of a locomotive, but no links or tabs, just the one photo.
