Radios of the 1950's

This Radio antennae case holds a radio antennae used to improve sound quality on old radios.  Since very few families had televisions in the 1950's, the radio was a very important part of the lives of many families.  Families would join together to listen to radio shows, music, and the news of the day.  This antennae is likely from the 1940's.
