Some of us like seeing the old advertisements from vintage era magazines. This Taylor Tubes advertisement from the February 1941 edition of the ARRL's QST magazine is a prime example.

National Instruments hadn't invented LabVIEW yet to run the testing station, so people manually placed the tubes into a board full of sockets for burn-in and testing.
