Variety Collection of Radio Magazines
Here we have cover images from a wide variety of early (1910-30) magazines about Radio, the mass entertainment and technology of its day. Boy, do these remind us of the early computer and internet magazines! Something about humans and their techno-fads, it seems. These run the gamut from single-color drawings to full four-color process printing, with painted and photographic covers and every stop in between. We picked them by the simple algorithm of "have 'em? show 'em." Which is to say that we're showing you covers that we have good quality scans or photographs for; there are lots of other images in our files but these are the best for artistic, historical, or image-quality reasons.
If you like old radio, you will like the e-book reprint of
the 1922 Sears, Roebuck Electrical Goods and Radio Apparatus Catalog. Here's a writeup about it, with pictures. It's $2.99, free of DRM, and with all the pages rendered as images you can enlarge to see detail, and even print out. It's $2.99! Follow the link.
