“On these pages you will find a lot of interesting pictures from a part of my tube collection. Together with some other pictures and links to sites who share the same interest I try to give you a trip through time. Let’s have a look at the first famous CRT and Camera tubes and its predecessor the Crookes Maltese Cross tube.

Also Roentgen (X-Ray), Geissler tubes and Ruhmkorff coils are part of this site. If you want to know more details about the topics, just follow the links on the pages to sites with in-depth information or biography from famous inventors.”Link.
