Severn Valley railway one of a lot

I was half expecting to hear Mrs Dale's Diary issue forth 

 

Note to Elizabeth. Hopefully Frank will explain Mrs Dale's Diary to you as his mother, like mine, may have listened to it

Unusual Tannoy design, Bill.
Bill Phillips: 1930s Ray. Art Deco I would think
they put some art into building speakers back then Bill... in fact they put art in most things that they built....petersmile
Bill Phillips: It was an era of style Peter
I'm still worried about Jim...Stylish speakers, Bill.
Bill Phillips: Hahaha. They have a touch of the Art Deco I think
Nice find!
Thanks Bill - Frank has explained!!
Bill Phillips: I thought he would smile

Good old Mrs Dale eh Bill. I never listened myself, Norma's listeneins to the Archies.
Bill Phillips: Can't say I did but heard it when my mother was listening. Ange and I used to listen to the Archers

I remember Mrs Dale too.

All those years of technological innovation and the announcements on trains are still as incoherent as ever!
Bill Phillips: I think it is deliberate Mike
i like the artwork, Bill. the rest of the background has an old world feel to it too; the white surface and the nails
Bill Phillips: It dates back to the 1930s Ayush
I googled it and found that Mrs Dale's Diary was the first significant BBC radio serial drama Bill.
Wonderful capture.
Bill Phillips: But the Archers is the longest running. It started the year I was born, and is still going!
Lovely old speaker, and a nice bit of fretwork. My parents listened to Mrs.Dale's Diary religiously every evening during the 50's then they got a television!
Bill Phillips: My mother listened until it ended, then she listened to Waggoner's walk

Yes, how is Jim, by the way? Do we know? This has a classic speaker face - no idea why they look like that.
Bill Phillips: I'm worried about Jim. He keeps prescribing the wrong things to the patients and they die........nothing new there
My mum also always listened to Mrs Dale's Diary - never missed a broadcast! This kind of speaker cover was very similar to the front of our Pye wireless, bought, I think in 1938/39
Bill Phillips: Very much Art Deco isn't it?
