April 1967 Popular Electronics[Table of Contents]
People old and young enjoy waxing nostalgic about and learning some of the history of early electronics. Popular Electronics was published from October 1954 through April 1985. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged. See all articles from Popular Electronics.
Here are a few comical, uh, comics from the April 1967 edition of Popular Electronics depicting the perception of techies during the era. Things really haven't changed much. Popular Electronics went out of print in 1985 after a 31 year run.
"Come on, Ed, I'll show you how to make an oscilloscope out of your TV set."
"It was a real buy ... 29 cents a pound."
" ... and two 36-inch tweeters."
"I'm getting closer to the trouble ... I've got it playing three minutes before the fuse blows."
