Zenith Company Began As Literal Radio Shack Next To Edgewater Beach Hotel

Later that year, Chicago Radio Lab expanded into a small shack at 5525 N. Sheridan Road, property owned by the glamorous up-and-coming hotel.

This article has 3 other Chicago locations (Show)

The pair of friends were former Navy men stationed at Lakes Naval Training Station who, after World War I, formed the Chicago Radio Laboratory out of Matthews' Uptown apartment kitchen at 1316 W. Carmen Ave. 

After only two years, Chicago Radio Lab had outgrown its lakefront garage and moved west to a 3,000-square-foot factory and office building at 6433 N. Ravenswood Ave., which remains today as the Chicago Industrial Arts & Design Center. 

Some of its creations are now on display from 1-4 p.m. weekends at the Edgewater Historical Society, 5358 N. Ashland Ave., until April.

    Zenith Company Began As Literal Radio Shack Next To Edgewater Beach Hotel
    EDGEWATER - Before Steve Jobs made working out of your garage cool, Ralph H.G. Matthews and Karl Hassel had already made history by helping to transmit the first transcontinental radio message out of a two-car garage on the grounds of the former Edgewater Beach Hotel.

    Strange...not sure what to make of it. They were far along on Wilson even had light fixtures installed. If they didn't have permits ots a good chance they hve to open the walls to reveal all of the mechanicals that never got inspected.

    That would basically mean paying someone to undo the work they paid to have done...only to pay again to have it redone...and pay some fines.

    There is a chance also the B&N management is getting completely hood-winked by their contractor but. ..that alibi don't work because permits are supposed to be posted and they were right across the street...coild have asked aboit it anytime.
