Electronics-Themed Comics

January 1956 Radio-Electronics Cover - RF Cafe[Table of Contents]

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Radio-Electronics, published 1930-1988. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

This set of electronics-themed comics from a 1956 issue of Radio-Electronics magazine hits on a variety of topics that were big in the day. Computers were coming into the public realm rather than just being a sci-fi wonder. Home personal computers were still a couple decades away, but mainframes were being imposed on the public through accounting and merchandising venues, rather than just curiosities of research laboratories. The "large screen" 27" television cabinet was necessarily deep enough to park a car in because cathode ray tubes (CRT's) were used, not flat screen plasma, LCD, or LED displays. Look closely at the captionless hospital scene to see what's going on there. Finally, as usual, the trials and travails of the typical TV repairman is included.
