Default Grain Store emporium in Blandford Forum

I was in this bric-a-brac store the other day, and there were some interesting radios on offer. Posting some pictures here in case anyone is interested.

Hoping I am not breaking any forum rules. The radio with the red tubes was not identifiable, but looked complete and quite interesting.

The wooden set with the red valves is the very well known wartime utilty set.

It looks as if its had a long wave adapter fitted the extra knob on the front.

Cheers

We used to have an identical Phillips record player in the sixties. I wonder if the cartridge in that one still works, or has turned to gue.

Thanks for posting.
