An original catalogue for Gymbo school and gym shoes. A lovely catalogue with lots of illustrations of the shoes, plus sketches of them in use in various activities. There are 8 pages plus covers, 6 of the pages show pictures of the shoes and the remainder give details of the company and their shoes.

The catalogue was issued by Ashworths Ltd of Albion Mills, Elton, nr Bury in Lancashire. It is undated but the catalogue includes a copy of a hygiene award won by the company in 1925 and so presumably the catalogue was issued shortly after.

Size 240 x 310mm, there is some marking to the front cover but the inside is in very good condition, staples are rusted but fully intact. Overall a very interesting catalogue
