First seen: 23-Apr-1925

Brand(s): Row-Tron

It was with great effort that I located an advertisement for one of the stranger brands, Row-Tron. Advertised for just one week in late April 1925 as a store brand for Rowerdink's.  Rowerdink's advertised Cunningham tubes before and after their Row-tron ad, so perhaps they got into trouble with their distributor agreements, many of which forbid carrying 'unlicensed' tubes.
