This type of radio was used on WWI sub-hunter ships.
Rick Martin did an amazing job creating a modern version of an Atwater Kent store display sign used in the 1925 rollout of the model 35 receiver.
My name is Daniel Dames and I am the curator of this online museum. Here you will find a collection of radios, amplifiers, speakers and related items from before the beginning of broadcast radio, the first mass medium, to the end of most early battery powered radios. The radios here date from 1917 to 1929. Almost all of the radios here have been restored to operating condition using original parts or identical parts from the same manufacturer. The largest manufacturers of the 1920s are represented here along with some manufacturers that are all but forgotten by time. You'll also find some one-of-a-kind and last surviving examples of radio history. This museum is dedicated to the early pioneers of radio and those whose discoveries led to the invention of radio itself. I hope you enjoy your visit and return often as the museum acquires new additions regularly. You can contact me by email at email@example.com.
New "General Information Wing" added to the museum. Downloadable PDF files of articles of general interest to collectors and restorers of 1920s battery radios. Only one file now, but more to be added soon.
