Sixteen-Tube Set Serves Restaurant Patrons (Jun, 1924)

Sixteen-Tube Set Serves Restaurant Patrons

Warren H. Keates, of Philadelphia, is the proud possessor of a real radio set, which he perfected and built himself.

The set has 16 tubes, and has a receiving range of 7,000 miles. Getting such stations as 2LO, London; 2ZY, Manchester; the Eiffel Tower, Paris; Brussels, or even Rio de Janiero, Brazil, is a common occurrence with this set.

It is used to entertain diners at the Radio Tearoom in Philadelphia.

    And of course there’s no disagreement about which station they listen to, right?

    I hope nobody tries to use that door in the background.
