The Electro Manufacturing Corporation produced TV lamps under the name Electrolite, and were located in Chicago, Illinois. Their lamps have often been attributed incorrectly to Shawnee, a company whose products they resemble somewhat.
This one is occasionally found with a label that reads, Genuine Electrolite, Electro Manufacturing Corp. Chicago, Ill. Photo courtesy of Bill Keller, Knoxville, TN.
