Radio Art
Robert Hawes
Robert Hawes is probably well known to many UK collectors as he was once editor of 'Vintage Wireless' the journal of the BVWS (British Vintage Wireless Society) he discontinued this role in 1996.
In the opening section of this book he describes the background and discoveries of Communication and Radio from around 1879 onwards,covering receivers from when they were of 'Breadboard' construction through to modern cabinet design.
The book has 128 pages and the last 75 are dedicated to really glorious colour photographs of radio receivers and loudspeakers from the 1920's to the 1990's.There are approximately 250 colour illustrations.
The photographs are good to the point that I have actually used them in the past to remake missing dials for some receivers!
