Object statement
Radio receiver, Stromberg-Carlson 5A26 mantle, Bakelite / glass / electronic components / fabric, designed and made by Stromberg-Carlson, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, 1946
The Stromberg-Carlson is a fine example of an Australian designed and manufactured radio from the early post war period. Many manufacturers were reducing the size and increasing the performance from their radio designs at this time.
Designed and manufactured by Stromberg-Carlson, 1946.
This radio was collected between the late 1940s and the late 1960s when the donor was an active radio electronic engineer operating a business from home building and repairing radios. The donor accumulated a collection of radios, valves, radio journals and assorted electrical engineering material over a lifetime.
