To see just how much our industry has changed in 50 years or so, take a look at the UK’s first ever edition of Electronics Weekly from September 7, 1960. It’s now scanned and online, minus the bits that the mice used for nesting. Perhaps not surprisingly, hardly any of the brands promoted in advertising in this issue are around today. The only one I could find was Plessey, but they moved on from making ceramic valve (tube) holders to semiconductors many years ago. Of course, specialist electronics PR agencies didn’t exist in 1960, so I wonder where journalists found all the news?
