The genuine article : the 1947 radio lives at the museum in Cundletown

Keith explained to Jayce that the radio was a handy thing for workers at the local mill, and it ran off a seperate battery, which had to be taken into Taree to be charged. Imagine the excitement when world events were brought to Taree via the airwaves!

If you have something worth a look or a share, we’d love to see it!
