Electronics-Themed Comics
January 1949 Radio & Television News

January 1949 Radio & Television News
January 1949 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 is a batch of electronics-themed comics that appeared in the January 1949 edition of Radio & Television News. The scene seen (hey, homonyms) on the page 118 comic was commonplace in the 1940s when televisions were relatively new and not every household had a set. The scenario repeated itself in the 1960s when color sets were hitting the consumer market. I remember people standing outside the display window at Rickey's TV & Electronics store in Parole Plaza, Annapolis, Maryland. Now, people can watch TV on their smartphones while not at home so gathering 'round the television display in a store is relegated pretty much to little kids watching the Disney movies that seem to always running on them. There is an ever-growing list of other comics at the bottom of the page.
