English: American actress Fritzi Scheff demonstrating a Magnavox public address system in New York City to promote the Fifth Liberty Loan, a US government war bond issue to pay for World War 1. The Fifth Liberty Bond was sold beginning in April 1919, so the picture was taken sometime after that date. This was one of the first public address systems, made possible by the development of the first practical amplifying vacuum tubes around 1917 and the first voice coil speaker, the Magnavox, in 1915.
