Heritage Fest – Radios

Yesterday we braved the rain to attend the annual Perth Heritage Days festival in central Perth. There were many different events and displays, plus heritage buildings open to the public.

Inside the iconic neoclassical post office building (above) there were several displays of communications equipment from the past, including demonstrations of Morse code. We liked this colourful HMV valve radio from the 1950s – just before the age of transistor radios.
