Wireless World, the first radio journal, appeared in April, 1911, as The Marconigraph. The present title was assumed two years later. The journal was originally published by the Marconi Company and circulated largely among engineers and operators, though from the start there was a public readership.
Wireless World became an independent journal In 1925. This series of review articles traces the significant advances in radio and electronics since Wireless World began.
Except in the 1911 section, the material is taken entirely from Wireless World pages and produced for the 1961 Golden Jubilee edition.
In the introduction an attempt is made to give the reader a glimpse of what everybody knew, in 1911.
