23 Jan 2014 – Video Evening

radios

Last evening, as a last minute substitution, we saw the video ‘Valveman’ which told the story of Gerald Wells and how he came to be the curator of the The British Vintage Wireless and Television Museum. This was in place of the planned visit out that had to be postponed due to a change in our host’s work schedule.  

This museum at West Dulwich, London displays one of the world’s largest collections of valves, vintage radios and other early apparatus from the pioneering days of wireless communication. These are all kept in his house in London.  

More details of the museum can be found at  http://www.bvwtm.org.uk  including a virtual tour and much more.
