PHOTO HUNTERS: OLD-FASHIONED

photohunters

This week’s theme is on OLD-FASHIONED.
This is an OLD-FASHIONED radio transistor
that was first introduced to Malaya in 1954 by the then National brand.
After independence from the British in 1957, our country has been named Malaysia and the National brand has changed its name to National Panasonic.
The OLD-FASHIONED radio belonged to my Dad
and I guessed it has become an antique as well.
As you can see, it is labeled as National All Wave Transistor 8.

Carver said...

That's perfect for the old fashioned theme. I remember when we had a radio very similar to that one. I wasn't born until 1957 but I think the radios we had in the early 1960s were very similar. Makes me feel old, ha. Hope you have a great rest of your weekend.

LibertyBelle said...

That brings back memories! I had a transistor radio I listened to all the time. Great shot!
