Shorpy

Anoche mientras buscaba fotos de equipos antiguos de radio para redecorar un poco caí en Shorpy. Es un sitio para compartir fotos “vintage”. Gran parte de las fotos que me gustaron también están en la Library Of Congress, con el agregado de que varias de ellas también fueron coloreadas por miembros del sitio. Por ejemplo esta de Mary Loomis, la primer mujer en dirigir una escuela para radioaficionados.

This colorized image shows Mary Texanna Loomis, the first woman in the U.S. to run a radio school, operating her radio station in 1921. Her school, the Loomis Radio College, operated in Washington, D.C., in the 1920's and 1930's. She is seated at an early receiver that uses a panel mounted crystal detector. The knife switches to the right are probably antenna selectors. Next to that is an antenna tuner called a "loose coupler", which is connected to a tube receiver out of view on the right.
