Vintage Tamron Lens Catalogues

My dad had a Tamron 90mm macro lens lying in an old camera bag for 25 years. He got it from a friend and the poor lens was a jumble of parts, still connected, but completely unusable. Apparently it had become unscrewed, helicoid and all, and was left to live a lonely life inside a bag. As I have recently begun doing some cleaning, lubricating, and adjusting (CLA) on old manual focus lenses, I thought I would take a stab at it. Perhaps I could breathe new life into this Tamron SP 90mm f/2.5 (52B).
I’ll get more into that story when I have the time. Long story short, I got it working and it’s awesome. So for now, enjoy these Tamron lens catalogues from the 1990’s. I just scanned a couple of them from a collection my dad has.

I just noticed that the 1995 catalogue has an error in it. It shows the 70-210 19AH lens as 70-300. Go figure.
