Looking for the owners of this vintage Zenith radio
Do you know someone who use to own a radio like this:.
Will Barnett purchased this radio for $7.00 from an elderly gentleman who lived at 109 NE Liberty Avenue in Gresham, Oregon. (Approximately 1989/1990) The elderly gentlemen told Will that he obtained the radio from a family of Japanese descent just before they were interned at camp during WWII. records show that no neighbors of Japanese descent lived on Liberty Avenue in the early 1940s. Could the Japanese family lived further away, or could the elderly gentlemen lived elsewhere in 1942? The search is on for the missing family who use to own this Zenith radio. .
