I only see this image in google images for '1939 radio football'.
I was trying to find out about a box game made in 1939 called Radio Football.
So, I'm guessing the picture is from that year.
Anyway not sure what magazine this is from or what this is all about.

A big picture so you all can see the cabinet detail and perhaps deduce the brand of the maker?

As for the 1939 box game, I read online the players would tune into the Ivy League game and whatever plays they hear
on the broadcast would influence the outcome of the box game. There are team cards for Ivy League teams (Dartmouth, Yale,etc.).

Radio news printers were tried and sort of failed. They were written about
by Hugo Gernsback. Telefax units were however very successful as small
automatic machines for office use. They could send and receive small telegrams.

The railroads set them up, much like teletype. Two Telefax units could
interconnect peer to peer with a regenerative repeater.

Crosley Reado radio and printer. Science Magazine, May 1939. Google "Crosley radio facsimile" images for much more information.

From what I read it was better than the first thermal faxes were.

Wow, :shock:

I had never heard of this type of appliance!


October 2017 Excellent New Crosley Exhibit Open Every Weekend At VOA


" The Reado – pronounced REE-aye-doh, sort of like radio –
came in a 1-foot cube wood box that connected to the Crosley radio speaker output line.
People would wake up in the morning and read the long scroll of WLW's radio news,
says Jack Dominic, director of the museum at
the 1940s Voice of America Bethany station,
8070 Tylersville Road, West Chester Township. "
