Radio Modernizes the Old Hayrake (Apr, 1933)
This reminds me of something from the movie Young Einstein.
Radio Modernizes the Old Hayrake
THE old hayrake has gone modern, and is now on par with the automobile., Take a look at the photo below and see what happened when a young fellow with a radio bee in his bonnet took it upon himself to modernize the rake.
The installation of the radio was effected when a young lady from the city volunteered to help rake the timothy while on her vacation at a Butler, New Jersey, farm. To keep her entertained, the farmer’s 12-year-old son fastened his home-made radio receiver to the rake and wound a loop antenna on a couple of sticks.
The signals came in clear and strong over the head phones during working hours.
