How people took a stand for weight in the 1950s
Here are more scans from my 1952 Spring and Summer Montgomery Ward catalog, this time sharing some bathroom weight scale options. How do they compare to today?
These scales only go up to 250 pounds! I took a quick glance at amazon best selling scales, and the trend for top sellers seems to be a max of 400 pounds.
This "doctor's type" scale goes up to 300 pounds, still below today's equivalent that goes up to 400 and up.
