Device Labels Sausages (May, 1938)
I had no idea decalcomania was a real word. From wikipedia:
“Decalcomania, or dÃ©calcomanie, a decorative technique by which engravings and prints may be transferred to other materials, was invented in Russia and introduced into the United States at least as early as 1868.”
Device Labels Sausages
Indelible labels are printed on sausages and other meats packed in natural casings by an automatic machine operating on the decalcomania principle. The device is designed to protect housewives from the substitution of inferior products for well-known brands.
Mobile Broadcasting Booth (Aug, 1951)
This is a pretty cool looking vehicle.
Mobile Broadcasting Booth
Radio reporters and commentators view news events at firsthand from the weatherproof press box built on a truck chassis for the Columbia Broadcasting System. As many as four commentators can broadcast simultaneously from the observation platform at the rear of the truck. The Plexiglas windows provide full vision on three sides. A plastic bubble atop the truck gives full forward vision. The truck has a high-frequency transmitter powered by its own generator. It has a range of 35 miles from the home station and can tie into telephone cables for longer transmission.
