As a volunteer at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney I have access to their library and their archives. In the archives are various catalogues from the major department stores in Australia (such as Mark Foys, David Jones, Myer, etc) from the 1880s up to the 1980s and beyond.
While researching for a blog post that I was writing on some of the corsets in the museum's collection I started looking through these catalogues to get an idea of pricing and advertising that went into selling them.
This particular catalogue was from 1895 when the business worked out of two stores at different ends of George Street in Sydney's CBD.
I thought I'd take some photos from the catalogue to share with you all to enjoy!
