Blast from the Past!

I have been shooting Pentax gear since 1970 and was recently cleaning out a file folder and found this. It is a 1976 Retail Price List brochure put out by the Canadian distributor for Pentax, at that time they were represented by an agency in Canada
I though that most of you might find it interesting. Enjoy!

Interesting thanks for posting.

It turns out that the McQueen Sales Company Ltd, the Canadian Pentax Distributor, was a Honeywell subsidiary. They were located at 1760 West 3rd Avenue Vancouver, a few blocks from where I live.

When the Pentax/Honeywell distribution agreement ended in the mid 1970’s, the Canadian Asahi Optical office was also located at the same address.
