Vintage ‘Internet’ Brand Transistor Radio Pre-Dates the Internet

Internet Brand Transistor Radio

Antiques expert Mark Hill stumbled upon this Internet brand transistor radio while perusing a vintage shop in Amsterdam. Hill believes the radio, sold by the British firm Internet Radio Product Ltd., is from the late 1960s or 1970 at the latest—the term “internet” was first used in reference to the emerging technologies which became the Internet back in 1974.
