Domestic Advertisements: Mervyn 1260 Table Radio

This trader advert from September 1950 shows a table radio from the little-known Mervyn Sound & Vision.   This midget-radio styling is a little dated, looking more like the post-war bakelite monsters with small tuning scales.

Attractive Appearance. Outstanding Performance. Moderate Price. Worthwhile Discounts.
