UNUSUAL PHOTO OF TINY NEW RCA DEVELOPMENTAL TUBES
CD 1967025 E&MP50.001
March 11, 1959
Inner assemblies and completed units of RCA’s new high-performance, thimble-size electron tubes appear to be dancing in mid-air as Mary Tomed of the company’s Harrison, N.J., plant inspects them.
The photographer made this unusual shot by focusing his camera into a mirror beneath a glass plate.
RCA’s new tube, called a “Nuvistor,” opens the way to more compact, more efficient electronic instrument for the home, the military, and industry.
