Default Re: Getting the right radio into a museum

I like 'museums of everyday life' to contain everyday objects. It's too easy for the wrong impression to be given,
In reality, NOBODY had gas radios or spirit-lamp gramophones, when taken at a reasonable number of decimal places.
At my local 'life' museum, it turned out that today's kids couldn't run with a hoop and stick. The blacksmith duly obliged with a batch having the hoop passing through an eye on the end of the stick.
All well and good, you might think; except that the poor wee lambs now think that a hoop and stick is a single item!
