Electronics-Themed Comics
October 1948 Radio & Television News

October 1948 Radio & TV News
October 1948 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.

Here are a few electronics-themed comics from a 1948 edition of Radio & Television News magazine. I particularly like the one from page 92. Webster's Dictionary offers 28 separate definitions of the word "carry" in both transitive and intransitive forms. The definition implied by the proprietor is #19 a :  to bear the charges of holding or having (as stocks or merchandise) from one time to another. The definition inferred by the lady is #1:  to move while supporting. How can one word have so many definitions?

A complete list of all the comics I have posted is at the bottom of the page. They would make good fodder for lightening up a technical presentation.
