EKCO Transistor Radio model A455

Serial number 91490

Table top mains operated transistor radio This radio is one of four which were given to a charitable company Furnishaid Limited situated in Great Yarmouth.The aims of the company are to provide recycled furniture to people on low income and to provide training opportunities for people in refurbishment of furniture. As these were unsuitable I made a donation and have added them to my collection

I understand that this model was first produced in 1967. Unusually for a radio of this vintage it has no VHF band.
