1909 Johnston Company Optician Eyeglass Catalog



CD-Rom republication for the 1909 Johnston Opticians catalog. Everything for the aspiring optician, lenses, tools, office furniture and equipment, even signage. A wonderful collectable for anyone in the profession, and a wonderful resource of clipart for self-publishers.

In the 19th century the responsibility of choosing the correct lens lay, as it always had, with the customer. Even when the optician was asked to choose, it was often on a rather casual basis. Spectacles were still available from traveling salesmen. Spectacles with large round lenses and tortoise shell frames became the fashion around 1914. The enormous round spectacles and the pince-nez continued to be worn in the twenties. In the thirties there was increased emphasis on style in glasses with a variety of spectacles available. Meta Rosenthal wrote in 1938 that the pince-nez was still being worn by dowagers, headwaiters, old men, and a few others. The monocle was worn by only a minority in the United States. Sunglasses, however, became very popular in the late 30's.
