After the first season of Star Trek the NBC sales department pounded the pavement hitting up agencies for new ad revenue.  One of the weapons in their arsenal was a letter distributed to the sales staff for client calls. See below for the original correspondence, written by Leonard Nimoy to Gene Roddenberry.  More Star Trek fun to follow…stay tuned.

These amazing models of DDR communication towers were made in Germany.  I’m obsessed with them.  They look amazing in groups!

This stereo console made by the German company Kuba is too good for words. The styling is amazing. This “Tango” console was made sometime between 1959 – 1962.
