The earliest photo we have of a Tradeshow is this Type 511 on a Type 500 Scope-Mobile at a Neely Enterprises booth in 1951.  Bob Morgan is pictured on the left and Norm Neely is on the right.  Neely Enterprises was an electronics distributor headquartered in California but occupied the upstairs at Hawthorne Electronics before Tektronix required all of the floorspace.  Neely Enterprises became the western distributor for Tektronix and was represented by W. K. Dallas before he became sales manager for Tektronix.

The earliest photo we have of an European tradeshow is at Stockholm in 1954.
