Lafayette Catalogs (Including Concord Radio and Wholesale Radio Service)

  Catalogs and Flyers from Lafayette and Concord.
Lafayette Radio Electronics Corporation was an American radio and electronics manufacturer and retailer.
The company began informally as "Wholesale Radio Service Company" around 1922, issuing its first catalog in 1924. In 1934, it began marketing its "Lafayette" brand radio sets. By the mid 30's, the company began advertising under both the dual Lafayette and Wholesale Radio Service names.
In 1939, the company reorganized as Radio Wire Television Corp. and a few catalogs actually mentioned this name.
In 1942, two of the retail regions actually issued different versions of catalog 87.
In 1945, the Chicago and Atlanta retail branches split from Lafayette and became the Concord Radio Company. By 1948, the companies had recombined into the Lafayette-Concord brand: Concord went its separate way in 1952.
 Headquartered in Syosset, New York, Lafayette sold radio sets, amateur radio equipment, citizen's band radios and communications equipment, electronic components and tools through retail outlets and by mail-order.
The company went into bankruptcy in 1980 and quickly liquidated its assets.
