The Logo

It's not original. I stole it from the cover of the 1952 edition of Allied Radio's catalog. An image of the catalog appears in Allied Radio's ad in the October 1951 issue of Mechanix Illustrated (several issues from this era lie forgotten in a remote corner of the office). I'm guessing that it is the Allied Radio building in Chicago (probably gone now). I scanned the image of the catalog, blew it up, and traced it. An earlier incarnation had these nifty horizontal background lines that give it a linotype kind of feel but when I reduced the size of the image for the latest version of the site, the lines just got all blurry so I removed them.
