  • Description

    This, the largest of the industrial fairs yet held at Leipzig, and 9,000 exhibitors from 43 countries, including Great Britain, Uruguay, Morocco, and Spain. The latter for the first time.

    Although this is a fair given for the showing predominately of heavy capital goods, there was light relief in the form of a planetarium, a working model of the universe.

    There was a great deal of agricultural machinery from Russia and East Germany; machine tools from Czechoslovakia. Of immense interest to the cine fan was a camera, the Admira 16A, from Czechoslovakia, which had an electromotor.

    Zeiss-Jena, who exhibited the planetarium had several other novelties on their stand, among them the new Werra IV, which has interchangeable lenses, a combined view and range finder and a photometer.

    The motoring enthusiast was catered for on various stands, but of particular interest was the 'Wartburg', a car from Eisenach, East Germany, and the 'Wolga', a Russian built vehicle.

    On the industrial side was an automatic coal mining machine, the combine 26, which is most useful where the labour supply is scarce and machinery must be substituted. This is a product of Russia. As is the automatic device for testing liquids shown at another Russian stand.
