Farnsworth!

1948 Farnsworth radio phonograph

1948 Farnsworth radio phonographThis is a recent acquisition from the Away Station. I like it so much I’m considering keeping it a radio. It was built in 1948, and I bet if I just replace 1 tube and the electrolytic capacitors, it’ll work just fine.

Philo Farnsworth was famous for inventing television, but his company made radios and such as well. There’s a statue of him outside the building where I work. George is a fan of technical innovators.
