Vintage Electronics Ads - A Window Into The Past

One enjoyable way to pass a little time is to flip through vintage periodicals.  Each page is a window into the past that allows you to see how people lived. 

This ad shows a radio phonograph selling for $81.88.  That was a lot of money for the time.  You couldn't buy anything like this made today at any price.
