Neat picture. It looks like he may have removed the seat from the car and is sitting in it and not on the ground.

Looks like early "Buck Rogers" stuff with those headsets doesn't it?

The radio is Ozarka, Inc.'s. first battery portable set circa 1924. Manufactured in Chicago by J. Matheson Bell. It came complete with enclosed batteries, headphone set and aerial wound inside the lid for the stated $65 price. I have the radio; wish I had the coupe. :-)

Interesting about that radio. My dad had over 200 antique radios when he died 11 years ago. Nearly a third of them were before 1932, but I am sure he did not have that one in his collection. Between my mother, my sister, and myself (my brother has also since passed) we kept about a dozen of his collection. All earlier ones. And I have a '24 coupe very similar to that one.
Quite a combination in that photo. Fairly early car, photography sign on its door, and an early radio. And quite a lovely looking couple.
Thanks all!

Hey, don't forget about those high impedance headphones too, (Brandies perhaps). I don't see an arial (antenna) wire in the photo or loop antenna so perhaps they are just getting set up. Don't think the compact loopstick type antenna with ferrite core was available back then.

I have a nice Aycrodyne 5 tube (201A) battery set that will go nicely with my 1927 Touring, have to plan a back to the future trip with it sometime for some multi hobby fun.

A three tube set is kind of overkill to just use headphones on.
