I enjoyed reading the comments yesterday, and hearing everyone's memories about the old tube radios. For those old holdouts still listening to these vintage radios . . . I wonder how hard it is to get the tubes for them now. Are all the old tubes even made anymore? I know the tubes burned out fairly frequently.
Anyway, today's picture is from the early 1900's and it shows a young lady listening to a radio. Again, massive batteries needed to run the radio. Battery technology was limited back then, so I bet the batteries did not last very long.
