|Hamilton-Ross "Telatime" Clock-Radio|
|This is a "Telatime"
clock-radio sold under the Hamilton-Ross name. The model number
(if any) is unknown, but the sticker inside identifies it as a
"Radio-Numeral-Clock". The clock movement bears a manufacturing
date of January, 1940.
It is a small radio, measuring about 10 inches wide, 10 inches high, and 5 inches deep. The radio chassis is a cheap, 4-tube design which is, interestingly, identical to that used by Air King in at least one of their radios.
The clock movement was made by the Pennwood-Numechron Company of Pittsburgh, PA. I have no information on Hamilton-Ross, nor do I know what the connection is with Anthony Martinek Devices, Inc. as seen on the sticker shown below. I located the name "Anthony Martinek" in an Allentown business directory from the 1940's. He was identified only as an "inventor".
