    Models to promote the portable sound idea were used long before than you might think, enjoy.

    40's were tough after the war, 50's on the other hand were much better so there must be an advert from that era ,google has too many things but NOT everything if you need to dig too deep.
    The 1938 photo amazed me too when I found it ,it is a crop from a photo that was published in Short Wave and Television magazine about an electronics exhibition in Paris in 1938 !

    1950s Lots of pictures women listening to radios (or wireless set as they were then called) but it is the headphones I am struggling with.

    I like that one from 1938, very slick for it's time. Sometimes you will find amazing technological stuff from around the 20's to 30's.
