This is interesting. The title for the General Motors S1B radio says it is a 25-cycle model, as compared to the S1A, 60-cycle model. According to an IEEE Xplore paper, "At 8:53 PM on 12 October 2006, a 66-kV circuit breaker tripped and locked out at the Harper Substation in Niagara Falls, New York, due to downed transmission conductors near Buffalo, New York. That event marked the end of over 111 years of 25-Hz alternating current (ac) electric power service on the American side of the Niagara Frontier." 25 Hz was considered a good, low frequency for conversion to DC, which was in common use in the early 20th century. The world did not standardize on 60/50 Hz until after World War II.

Radio Service Data Sheets

These schematics, tuning instructions, and other data are reproduced from my collection of vintage radio and electronics magazines. As back in the era, similar schematic and service info was available for purchase from sources such as SAMS Photofacts, but these printings were a no-cost bonus for readers. There are 227 Radio Service Data Sheets as of December 28, 2020.
