Electronics-Themed Comics
October 1947 Radio-Craft

October 1947 Radio-Craft

October 1947 Radio Craft Cover - RF Cafe[Table of Contents]

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Radio-Craft, published 1929 - 1953. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.

Here are three more electronics-related comics to help brighten your day. They appeared in a 1947 issue of Radio-Craft magazine. The first one reflects what was a problem seen in early compact vacuum tube radios with molded plastic chassis. The gag is the lady's blaming the problem on something else unrelated. The term "table-top" probably originated in the early twentieth century to describe products which, prior to miniaturization efforts using newfangled materials and manufacturing methods, existed only in the form of large model that stood separately on the floor. The last comic could actually be applied to today's world if you substitute a cellphone for the corded handset. Enjoy!
