    A while back I posted beautiful covers of camera catalogues. Shown here is a lovely cover from a 1906 Century Camera catalogue. In my opinion, it is one of the most artistically rendered of all with incredible romantic overtones.

    As I’ve noted in other postings, the early 1900s was a time that Kodak (and other companies) were targeting women. The theme of this 1906 Century Camera Company catalogue is ‘a memory’ as described within:

    “Who does not keep souvenirs to prize as the only visible recollections of memorable occasions? We cling to them as if they were the only connection between then and now; the link which, if lost, would let the occasion slip from our memory forever.

    How we treasure the memories of other days, and yet how few of what were once memories—and cherished memories, too, have long ago faded—crowded out by new impressions. Times that we looked upon years ago, perhaps, as “red letter” days—events which we thought nothing would ever efface, have been worn smooth by the constant cataloguing of the new.”

    They sure don't write catalogues like this anymore.

    Anyhow ... Valentine’s Day is close ... keep your camera handy and take memorable pictures of your loved ones!
