To clarify things and prevent disappointment, there is not (yet) a TV shop at the Black Country Living Museum, although one is planned as part of the next phase of development there by around 2023. The new shop, Stanton’s, will be set in 1959-1960 and will stock musical instruments, sheet music, records and a wide range of TV sets, radios, record players, radiograms and tape recorders.

The Museum’s existing 1939 radio shop, Griptons, is still thriving however - bring your accumulators for charging! Only 3d...
