1938 Northern Electric Radio

 

This radio belongs to a good friend.  It found its way in here because of the complete owners manual and a full set of radio licenses from 1938 to 1948.  I have included front and back of the 1938 and 1948 documents.

The licenses were enacted in Canada at the start of the Second World War and remained in effect well after the war (a little extra cash flow never hurt anyone :-).  At least they weren't disabling the short wave bands over here.

The owners manual is interesting because of the radio frequency listings across Canada and the USA.
