Sharp Boomboxes

Sharp Boomboxes
Sharp is an electronics company founded in Tokyo, Japan by Tokuji Hayakawa in 1912. The Sharp name comes from one of their first products the Ever-Sharp mechanical pencil. The company moved to Osaka, Japan after the 1923 Great Kanto earthquake and a couple of years later in 1925 started to produce radio sets in 1925. The first television sets came in 1953. Sharp boomboxes first appeared in the late 1970’s.
