Camera Tubes

Pickup and Video Storage Tubes

These tubes were salvaged from the RCA lab in Camden, New Jersey by a collector, who then sold them to Chuck Azzalina. Chuck generously donated them to the museum. These tubes date from the late 40s. Identification of the tubes was based on markings on the tubes and on similarity to the photos in the RCA Review magazines. If you know anything about these tubes, please contact us.
