The transistor circuit was first developed in 1947 and by the mid-1950s it had found its way into the first portable radios. By the 1960s transistor radios were being mass-produced and millions of people carried them on their wrists, piping in top 40 tunes.
The inspiration behind our Transistor Radios Art Print
When you think of it, transistor radios were one of the world's first mobile devices and were largely responsible for the explosion of rock and roll. They were compact, relatively light and kind of cool to look at.
This print features a few I have found through the years during my many antique hunts. It makes a great addition to any pop-culture enthusiast's collection or for anyone that enjoys vintage-inspired art with a modern twist.
