Default Dansette RT60 spotted in The Railway Streatham

I am used to spotting odd radios in pubs and shops but this one is uncommon enough for comment. It was the only Radio I saw in the pub.

It threw me because I would have expected it to have Dansette on the bottom of the dial.

Cheers

Well, talk about happenstance! I am a member of South West London CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) Branch and I had an email from our Branch Secretary yesterday informing me of the pubs that scored some success in being voted as our Branch pub of the year. Would you believe that the Railway, 2 Greyhound Lane, Streatham SW16 5SD came in third? This pub was runner-up last year. So double the pleasure of drinking excellent beer and looking at uncommon radios, too.
Colin.

The Dansette RT60, like the RT66, was offered by surplus dealers around 1961-2 in the pages of Wireless World and probably elsewhere: no brand was mentioned in the ads, so maybe the radio in the Railway was one of those sets, sold unbranded to reduce any commercial harm to the Dansette name.

I went to the Railway when visiting my aunt about 15 years ago (she lived in Ellison Road and is now deceased). I remember it had a very impressive 1930s bar at the back. Hopefully it hasn't been wrecked in the meantime.
