Two-ring binder with heavy cardstock wraps; oblong, 282x184 mm; contains more than 1200 silver contact prints, ranging in size from about 25x32 to 58x58 mm, mounted to the recto and verso of 130 leaves; most images have a numerical caption in ink, some have longer captions in German. A few leaves loose; some images torn away, leaving either a scuff mark or a chip in the paper; but most pages are complete, and the images that remain are fine. Photo album of tremendous variety, documenting German industry and European trade fairs. Up-close and aerial views of garden shows, fashions shows, equestrian shows, food preparation, farming, manufacturing, interiors, and more. Highlights the golden age of post-WWII economy in western Europe, showing consumer and office products, as well as industrial factories, heavy machinery (and parts), and generators. Leitz was founded in 1871 by Louis Leitz, who developed and introduced the Leitz-Ordner, i.e., the lever arch file. Subsequently, the now-common round hole in the back of the file was added.
