You will be excused for not knowing that Norelco, famous today (or was it seemingly just yesterday?) for its line of electric shavers, coffee makers, and cassette recorders, once was famous for its radio loudspeakers. Norelco also offered a line of wooden speaker cabinets. This advertisement appeared in the April 1957 issue of Radio and TV News magazine. "Sink me, the copy writer's a poet," to paraphrase Sir Percy Blakeney from "The Scarlet Pimpernel."
