Tribute to Herbert W. Gordon - W1IBY
1915 - 1973

Herb owned and operated the Herbert W. Gordon Company. It was a large ham radio outlet store in the 1960's located in Harvard, MA. His logo that he is remembered for was "Helping Hams to Help Themselves".

Please read his tribute by W8SU!

Herb Gordon's sales store "Hilltops" at Harvard, Mass. More than meets the eye, the basement was filled with surplus treasures and was the shipping facility. They had a large mail order business along with thousands of square feet of display area.

Appears to be Dayton vintage 60's - OM Herb Gordon is sitting taking an order. People used to dress - up style in those days!
