Trav-ler Model 5182 Clock Radio (1950s)

This whimsical clock radio was designed to look like a TV, right down to the big TV-style knobs. The knob shown in this picture selects the station, and a matching knob on the other side controls the volume.

The clock face on this radio is identical to the one on my Trav-ler 5170. The speaker is mounted on top of the cube-shaped case. This arrangement saves space, but the speaker cone tends to collect dust over the years.
