Crosley TV
April 1954 Radio & Television News Article

April 1954 Radio & TV News
April 1954 Radio & Television News Cover - RF Cafe[Table of Contents]

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Radio & Television News, published 1919-1959. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

You wouldn't know it from the lineup of Crosley Corporation radios and turntables appearing in department stores, but the company also manufactures dishwashers, ranges and freezers, clothes washers and dryers, and air conditioners. That is still a small chunk of what Crosley, based in Cincinnati, Ohio, made back in the middle of the last century, including cars and trucks, a small private airplane (the Moonbeam), television sets and even had a television broadcast station, as well as other items that were part of the mainstream of American life. Take a look at their About Crosley webpage for more insight. Amazingly, along with the extensive line of retro radios and turntables, they still also make a few models of full-size jukeboxes. This full-page advertisement for Crosley TVs appeared in a 1954 issue of Radio & Television New magazine. BTW, that $139.95 price in 1954 is the equivalent of $1,350 in 2020 dollars (per the BLS) - for a 17" black and white low-resolution (525 scan lines) set!

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
