Advertisement for the Friden 130 Electronic Calculator

Advertisement for the Friden 130 Touting Productivity Improvements at Gimbel Brothers Department Stores Finance Department
Friden News Magazine, January, 1966

This advertisement speaks to a marked improvement in Accounts Payable productivity at Gimbel Brothers Department Store in Philadelphia as a result of replacing Friden's sophisticated (for the time) Model SBT electro-mechanical calculators with the Friden 130.

This is the earliest advertisement found thus far for Friden electronic calculators that states that Friden is a division of Singer Company. Earlier advertising states that Friden is a subsidiary rather than a division of Singer.
