The sloping effect is an optical illusion - honest!

This Ferranti 1956 catalogue carries the yellow and blue theme of the valve boxes and logo of the time.  Showing some sample, leading-edge valves, in a CRT-shaped window is a pretty neat idea to get both product types across.  Big bold spots liven up the dull background.  Issued in August 1956, list FVT 456.

Valve Ephemera: Ferranti Advertisements

June 1950 - Immediate Delivery

Basic advert pushing the fact that you can get Ferranti valves quickly.  Ferranti were not heavy advertisers of their valve products to the trade so this is quite a rare advertisement. 
Dec 1958 - ...for Radio and Television

Just about as simple as you can get; images of valves and a CRT and nothing more!

Lists (from left to right) the 7C5, 6SQ7GT, 6SK7GT, 6K8GT, 6V6GT, 6K7GT, R52, 50L6G valves.

 "Immediate Delivery", "Valves for Radio and Television".

Electronics Department,
Moston, Manchester 10

Shows PCF82, PCC85, PCF80, PCC84 valves and an unknown CRT.
