We were astonished when researching our family history to discover that my Great-grandfather's firm, the Gambrell Brothers, were pioneers in the electronics industry and had made the first radio which plugged into the mains in Britain - the Baby Grand - in 1926. We have been trying to find one ever since - the nearest we have got to getting one is this 1928 Gambrell Cabinet 3 which we bought on eBay! It is now a family heirloom.
Radio has been one of the most amazing inventions ever - news, company, entertainment, sport, educuation etc. We are proud our family has been part of those pioneering radio days.
