That was sure an interesting read on the Grigsby-Grunow company. They sure flew high. Must of got to close to the sun. It seems that type of story occurred, with many products, since the beginning of the industrial revolution. A new product comes out. Then it starts to sell quite well. Then, there are many technical improvements made to it. It is well made and designed to last many years. Soon everybody wants one. Companies can’t keep up with demand. A downturn in the economy occurs. The market is saturated with the product. Since it will last ten to twenty years, there is no need to buy a new one. The market stagnates.

The Midwest radios looked like they were well built. They must of done quite well selling tubes. That 24 tube Royale Victoria model caught my eye.
