A friend got a bunch of ca. 1929 AK matchbooks the other day, from a local elderly man who had some family connections to AK. Just thought I'd share it here. Note they are concerned with AK refrigerators...not radios.

I have a few matchbooks for AK radios, but not one for the AK refrigerators.

That one would go great with my Atwater Kent refrigerator.

OK, so which one was photoshopped?

Can I assume the one for AK refrigerators is original???

Here are some of mine.

Atwater Kent did advertise his refrigerators in 1935 as "Superior Refrigerators"

I drive past the old factory every day!

Dan,
Yes the refrigerators were made in the same AK factory as the radios.

Yes... I photoshopped the OP's Refrigerators matchbook, which is original.
(the radio one if fake).


Apologies to Tbirdkid.
Greg.

Wow you are good. So can you photoshop a surprising rare radio that never existed along with a spurious explanation? Save it for April first unless you want to be somewhat shunned. Or looked askance-at, all the time.

I've only photoshopped one radio, ever - and it was strictly for humor purposes.

Why post a photo of John Walton carrying a Stewart-Warner tombstone... :shock:
I know the rules of the schoolyard.

Huh..."they made radios and refrigerators in the same plant." :o

And a far-thinking individual never proposed a refrigerator with a radio
built into the door? ...and how about a radio signal connecting the radio & refir?
...ala todays WiFi connected appliances. :wink:
