It is an interesting and likely useless point, but Manhattan type
construction really sort of emulates the construction practices of the
1920's and 1930's! There is an interesting progression of chassis types
from real breadboards through cabinets that are really an attempt to
make radios neater, safer, and prettier! If you look at building
practices you will see this progression!
Manhattan is a nice way to go for solid state circuits because they are
low voltage. Imagine, if you will, what they would be like if they were
vacuum tube circuits. This is not to say a vacuum tube circuit can't be
built this way, it can, but it is less safe!
