I recently bought a 1939 Honolulu travel brochure off of eBay and found a couple of interesting ads that I figured I would share with you all. I know that Kamaka needs no introduction, but I don't expect that everyone is familiar with Bergstroms. It was a music store in Hawaii that ordered the first 6 ukuleles that Martin ever built in 1907, almost 10 years before they would fully enter the ukulele market.

Very cool, boy what one of those 6 Bergstroms labeled Martins would be worth! I liked how Kamaka advertised for "Agents, Worldwide". Thanks for sharing!
