Antique Radio Technical Forum
The reasons behind my opinions

Posted by Bill G. on 04/08/2009 17:56

Hi Joe,
The theme seems to be celebrating the thing you are making, be it tools or capacitors. They were celebrating the thing as a miracle.
Have you ever noticed how well boxes for replacement tubes were decorated in the 1930's?
I understand that the 1930's was a time of peak artistic creation with Art Deco and Art Nuvo being in style. Our radios from this time period look so good partly because of their being maufactured at a time when art was celebrated and the new technology was admired.
How was that for random thoughts?

Best Regards,

Bill Grimm
