Here is something it seems some radio collectors out there may enjoy and it does complement the other Tradio hotel radio that I had added to my collection on here prior.
This item is about 12 inches across and the radio does work. It would have been set up at a hotel or hospital and someone would deposit from 1 to 5 dimes with each dime giving you an hour of radio play. The radio would have been clamped down onto the headboard where it could be operated by someone lying in bed, thus the reason for the dial being upside down.
The pillow speaker could be placed under the pillow you were sleeping on so the soft sounds of 1950's music could lull you to sleep.... ; )
Thanks for looking as always my friends. Have an awesome weekend! Stay cool if you can where you are as well because it is a scorcher where I am at.... : )
