Abstract : The paper contains a description and discussion of the brightness distribution of extra-galactic radio sources based mainly on recent observations at the California Institute of Technology. The paper concentrates on displaying general properties of radio sources rather than a discussion of individual sources. The angular scale and the morphological types of radio structures are discussed, a method for analyzing the structure of a large sample of sources using the visibility function is outlined, and the spatial properties of the radio structure and galaxy are discussed.
