the visual poetry of graphic necessity...

1939 snapshot of radar station chart

another photo from the same album as yesterday's post. this time a photo of a wall chart of staff at a radar station, also dated 1939. i'm assuming someone took the photo because their name is on the sign, but perhaps it was someone, like myself, who simply responded to the form follows function design of the image itself. certainly not an unfamiliar form in the context of my own visual vocabulary... and it is nice that the image looks a bit like a satellite, many years before there was such a thing...
