The First Twenty Years - Floyd A. Paul

Out of print for years, this valuable reference has been nearly impossible to find. Reprinted with permission by the Southern California Antique Radio Society, all three volumes are available once again. These fascinating books contain a series of articles by Floyd A. Paul on radio manufacturing in Los Angeles, many of which were originally published in the SCARS Gazette.

Focusing on the era from 1922-1942, this illustrated compilation documents many of the prominent as well as more obscure West Coast makers and their leaders, including Gilfillan, Echophone, Flint, Herbert Horn, Jackson Bell, Patterson Radio, Powell Mfg., Radio Product Sales, J.W. Miller, The Wireless Shop, and more.

Published in a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" softcover format, this three booklet set includes Los Angeles Radio Manufacturing (88 pages), Supplement #1 (46 pages), and Supplement #2 (54 pages), and is currently available in limited supply.
