We have moved and when time permits are gradually sorting out the display. The main acoustic phonograph room is ready, we are working on the radio collection room etc - urgently needing plinths, shelves and storage /display cases

We are looking for a reputable experienced person or company in the area to carry out electrical and mechanical restoration. Contact us.

NONE OF THESE ITEMS ARE FOR SALE: some are on load from private owners.
