As with the 1939, any questions about the contents will be answered coherently?, with what I can remember. This was the first BB catalogue that I saw back in the early 1950's.
In those days my home town of about 500,000 people had 180 bike shops, mostly old repairers. By 1960 about a dozen were left, as bikes were rarely sold for utility commuting by then.
