Shipboard Radio Room, 1913

It's an ad for Fatima Cigarettes, and it appeared in the January 25, 1913 issue of SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN.

I'm not going to make any assumptions about the accuracy of the equipment shown here, though it was undoubtedly drawn by an artist working from a photograph of an actual installation. The two-color printing works pretty well here, in contrast to some of the other ads from this series (click here and then choose "next" to see some more). As always, click the image for a larger version.
