Tube and Tears (Apr, 1946)

Alrighty then.

Tube and Tears combine to produce this picture of progress and sorrow. The tube is the world’s most powerful radio tube, designed primarily for broadcasts directed toward specific points, so-called “beam transmissions.” Tears are supplied by 3-year-old Barry Greenwood, whose father is shop steward at the Federal Telephone and Radio plant, Clifton, N. J., where the tube was manufactured.

    I’m sorry Barry, the robot won’t be ready for your fourth birthday.
