Klick here for "all" Lafayette models.
Use the "Advanced search" for limiting by years - to get the later models.

Lafayette is known as a mail-order catalog business with sales outlets in different cities.See company description and the text about these catalogs.

See also the next main catalog, the Lafayette Radio Catalog no 85 which we still miss and 86 (1941-2) copyrighted 1941 - for season 1940/41??
he main catalog before this Gift Guide here is Lafayette Radio Catalog no. 82, 1941 for 1940/41, the one directly before.

But directly next after this catalog here is the Lafayette catalog No. 84 which we miss.

Lafayette Catalog no. 83, Gift Guide 1940

We link this thread to each model from this catalog.
We then have a common text for each model in this catalog and can inform about the specific model year etc. We then don't have to change on each model if we find something new or an error etc.

Company names:

The catalog no. 80 (copyrighted 1940) is still showing "Radio Wire Television, Inc." (formerly Wholesale Radio Service Company Inc.). The 20th Anniversary catalog, no. 82 (copyrighted 1941), shows "Lafayette Radio, the world's largest radio supply house" and inside it shows "Lafayette Radio Corporation" (LRC) as company name. This applies also for this Gift Guide 1940. The striking point is that catalog no. 86 (copyrighted 1941) reads again "Radio Wire Television, Inc.".


This will be worked on after we could enter the models and pictures for the models corresponding to this catalog. We need the URL for the linkabe of each model to its catalog.
A lot of work for this is in the front.
