A 1931 car radio

This scan of a heavily retouched photograph first appeared in a February 1931 edition of The Autocar. The fur-coated model is seen adjusting the controls of a radio installed in a Crossley saloon. It’s clear from the radio’s position on the nearside of the dash, that for a driver travelling alone, re-tuning while on-the-move could prove to be quite a distraction. (LAT photoscan from The Autocar 20th February 1931)
