Electronics... Circa 1938

Electronics... Circa 1938

Electronics... Circa 1938

I'll step over to my hobby, for a minute, and mention an item that may be of interest to the Electrical Engineers here. Scanned and posted the 165 page 1938 Allied Radio catalog on my "other" website. An order blank is included so you can take advantage of the low, low prices... with the help of a time machine smile
Here is a link to the web page:

Fantastic stuff!  Thanks for posting.

RE: Electronics... Circa 1938

I like it.  That is not your average consumer's radio catalog.  

Not being quite old enouh to appreciate tube gear my only take away - The bottom one on pg 16 looks like a 1970's toaster we once had that was, nothing short of, a tool of arson.

And not so cheap...  According to Dollartimes.com:
$50 in 1938 had the same buying power as $729.97 in 2009.
Annual inflation over this period was about 3.85%.

My dad worked there in 1938, you can see a photo by following "Picture of Development Lab at Bromsgrove Street in 1938" from the "People and Personalities" link on the left.
Oh, and I still have dad's slide rule, which he is holding in the photo.
