Majestic Electric Radio Advertisement
The Majestic radio was photographed down in the mines about 50 to 100 ft. and ¾ of a mile back in the mine, using a four foot aerial and there was good reception from stations in Chicago, Kentucky, Tennessee and Texas. Six men in suits and topcoats are posed behind the radio. The man on the far right is identified as Ted Geistart. Two men in work clothes are kneeling on either side of the radio, one holding a small lamp. A sign on top of the radio says “This is a Majestic Electric Radio”. Behind the men is a rail car filled with broken rock.
