A sampling of Red Lion Cabinet Company radio and TV cabinets
As a follow up to my recent post and York Sunday News article on the Red Lion Cabinet Company, here are photos of some of the millions of wooden radio and television cabinets turned out by the company from the 1920s through the 1950s. Lighting and angles are not ideal in the photos, but you can see enough to perhaps bring back childhood memories. You can see these cabinets and much more at the Red Lion Area Historical Society Center Square Museum on Sundays from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. or by appointment. I’ll follow up with some of their many wartime products in a later post.
The next two photos show some of the early “portable” radios.
The two photos below, from the 1930s and 1950s, show how home entertainment. as well as style changed in less than 20 years.
Old radios and televisions seem to be hot topics on the internet. Here is a link to the 1936 Philco. It also shows the open back, giving you an idea of how much room it took for the tubes and other parts.
