way to finish out a week that to enjoy a few vintage electronics-themed comics?
This quartet appeared in the November 1960 issue of Radio-Electronics magazine.
The one on page 81 reminds me of where I worked as an electrician on a work-study program
my senior year of high school (and for another year thereafter). The company was
Bausum & Duckett Electric, in Edgewater, Maryland. Shortly after arriving
there the conference room where the managers, engineers, and upper level electricians
(none of which included yours truly) held meetings was renovated, and part of the
new furniture was a huge table in the shape of a mercury vapor lamp - pretty darn
clever IMHO. The comic on page 100 is my favorite from this batch; the look on the
guy's face is priceless! Solar power was just becoming a big deal in the early 1960s,
so there were a lot of comics built on that theme, as well as the immensely popular
hi-fi system craze of the day.
