the story of the Philips logo

Philips favored azulejos instead of paint. Today, it proves to be the right choice. Mejores no hay - PHILIPS

and barely visible the parrot saying
qui dit TÉLÉ - qui dit RADIO

or
radio and Radiola are synonymous

No parrot on this wall. The R has the right shape however. The mascot probably went away together with the caption. Two Radiola layers on top of Evian
The shape of the R is different from the previous pictures and probably never featured a parrot-head.

James Spangler, a tinkerer reduced to cleaning floors at department stores, made the first electric suction carpetcleaner and patented it in 1908.
One of his first contraptions was sold to his cousin married with William Hoover then a saddlemaker. Hoover was very well aware that his saddle-business couldn't last forever and soon purchased the rights to manufacture the suction sweeper.
Sales became a success after Hoover recruited door-to-door salesmen giving demonstrations in homes throughout the U.S.
Hoover ê tempo livre
or: Hoover means free time

The modern way of talking to the passers-by. The message does more than tell what the product is: it indicates the gain for the buyer.

H.M.V. RADIO

His Master's Voice was a trademark of the British Gramophone Company. The Belgian division S.A. Gramophone N.V was founded in the autumn of 1936 in Brussels and produced radio and later also television sets. Gramophone ceased to exist in 1971 and became EMI Belgium.

The painting was spotted in the Kazerne­straat: a street parallel to the Lemonnierlaan where the company was housed.
