Stewart-Warner Concert Grand Radio-Phono, 1941


Seventy-five years ago today, this high-quality radio-phono was under a hundred dollars (with trade in of your old radio), at Gimbles Department Store in Milwaukee. This add appeared in the January 31, 1941, edition of the Milwaukee Sentinel.

The set came in a deluxe mahogany cabinet, and featured world-wide reception (presumably meaning that it tuned both standard broadcast and shortwave).  The automatic record changer would accomodate up to fourteen records.  It also had a “built-in antenna and ground.”
