Amazing collection! I always wondered if these groundbreaking manufacturers had a "stash" of their best work. Question answered!

Hey GH, I saw the longer one from 2 years ago, but didn't remember seeing the layout material from the 1969 catalog. That is historic stuff.

That is remarkable art and says a lot about the attention to detail that Centuri/Lee Piester paid to graphics. Pretty much unparalleled. Centuri employed 6 graphic artists!
