My friend David's radio. Not exactly sure about the model number on this one and not much is known about the manufacturer. Probably one of the many small companies that started up after the war making cheap radios out of surplus radio parts. Everything on this radio is quite generic, yet I've never seen another quite like this. Below pic: Before restoration.
