A family heirloom
This is a 1947 Bush brown bakelite radio which belonged to F's parents. It's a really beautiful looking radio and still works after all these years. It needs a bit of work on it such as sorting one of the valves and sticking the knob back on (the one he's holding in the picture). That will give him another little project to work on.
If anyone is interested, the top of the radio with the stations on is the extra.
