The last shop in the town I live in that repairs kitchen/household appliances like vacuum cleaners, food mixers, toasters and heaters has shut after 70+ years in business fortunately I know one of the owners and was offered some of the old items they had on display in the front window and this is one of them (more to come). This old Philips radio is the same model as the old radio in our house that I grew up with and brought back so many memories I just had to have it. Of course back in those days there was only AM stations available and the short codes for all the ones in NZ are on the dial 2ZP was our local one. Not sure if it works yet I'll have to make up a battery pack as the ones that used to fit are now only a memory. Gave it a big clean-up on the outside today and it looks good.
The last photo is of Bonnie in her cart that allows her to walk, she isn't in it all the time just once a day to give her back legs some movement and exercise. She grumbles about been put in it but seems to enjoy it once in.
