Americana Industries, Inc.
170 Broadway
New York, NY (1962)

Importer of  transistor radios labeled "Aladdin", "Americana", "Epic", "Riviera", and "Wayfarer" that were made in Japan in the early 1960's.  Was also known as Inter-Ocean Commerce Corp. at the same address (1963).

Note that there are some "Americana" transistor models that were imported by Topp Import & Export, Inc.  These primarily were made in Hong Kong in the mid to late 1960's and have a more scripted "Americana" logo.  There also are some later (1980's - 1990's) "Americana" transistor models that were made in China.   The later made in China models most likely are not associated with American Industries, Inc. or Topp Import & Export, Inc.
