To The Daily Sun,
I am looking for info on Browning Laboratories (1958-1979) located in Laconia. They manufactured a very famous line of CB radios. I'm out here in California making research a bit difficult. Hoping to find some old photos, number of employees or anything else business related, perhaps some little-known Browning Labs history.
I know Browning Labs had at least two Laconia locations, Guild Mill building at 100 Union Ave., and later in Lakeport at 1269 Union Ave. I'm very curious as to employee numbers and other aspects as to their 1979 closing. I write radio repair manuals, doing one on a Browning product, though it would be fun and informative for the radio community to know about Laconia's famous little radio factory.
Running Springs, Calif.
