A top view.
From the Montgomery Ward Spring-Summer 1939 catalog.
The wondrous power-transformer-operated chassis.
This Airline must've been bought in a Montgomery Ward store (not mail-ordered from the catalog). What else would explain the sales tags, filled out with price ($2 higher than the catalog!) and model?
After less than a year of use, the radio's volume control needed cleaning. Now, over 60 years later, the volume control is still working fine.
