There was also Fair Radio Sales, and Radar Research.  Also, 
C&H in Pasadena.  HGR in Cleveland is supposed to be quite 
fantastic, but mostly industrial and CNC machinery.

I went to the Canal street surplus shops in NYC when I was a 
little kid, so late 1950's early 1960's.
A total blast!  Want a complete IBM 650 computer?  They had it!
