geiger counter ad

I saw one of these in a cheesy 1950s sci-fi movie the other night. I remember seeing “Technical Associates” on the dial.

This ad is from the September, 1954 issue of Popular Science – a time when a lot of Americans had dreams of striking it rich prospecting for uranium.

I seem to recall my chemistry/physics teacher having one of these – or something like it – in his classroom.
