Thumbnail Image of Download Consumer Bulletin Magazine - January 1972
Consumer Bulletin was a highly respected consumer product information magazine from the 1930's onward. It was the main competitor to Consumer Reports from the 1930's through the 1970's.

Articles on Products and Ratings in this issue include:
  • Automatic Dishwashers

  • Full discussion and tests of 13 portable and undercounter dishwashers are conducted.

  • Weather Instruments

  • Small Automobiles

  • Color Film


Please note this issue was lent to our library in a bound volume which could not be taken apart for scanning. An overhead book scanner was used, which produces very good quality scans, albeit with some slight page curling at the margins. The documents are clear and nice to read and the pictures are very good as well, however it's quite not up to the same image quality standard as a flatbed scanner.
