Pamar Colour Slide Catalogue (1957)

I’ve been after a copy of this Pamar Colour Slides catalogue for some time now and thanks to Paul from Firebird Records I now have a copy to share. Pamar Productions Ltd was formed by both Pamela Green and Harrison Marks in June, 1957 (Even before Kamera No.1 was published) with both being equal partners in a venture to provide quality 35mm slide sets of the models. This catalogue shows 81 sets produced under the Pamar title, but these shouldn’t be confused with slide sets titled ‘Harrison Marks Colour Slides’ and produced by Kamera Cine Films, of which there were 70 sets produced. Another difference between the different slide sets was that originally the Pamar sets came in a small box, whereas the later sets were sold in a flat transparent plastic wallet.

Having now looked through this catalogue I realize I have over 30 individual Pamar slides in my collection, but unfortunately no full sets! It seems that over the years these sets have been broken down and sold on individually, with many not even having the original grey cardboard holder, just the colour negative itself.

Enjoy the catalogue below and I hope it helps identify the slides and sets produced, as I know it helped me, as I now have to go back and tag the slides I’ve collected to the set name and number. All good fun!

  1. Is Carol, Marie Deveraux ?

  2. Can you please post an enlarged copy of the second in top row (multi montage)? Just clicking on it for a larger view doesn’t do it justice.
