Wireless Vintage Madness: RCA Victor Victrola Radio + Record Player (lid open)
I took some photos of my father's vintage radio collection.

We have not decided which one, or when, or how much to sell these radios yet. The wooden ones are older than the Bakelite (first-generation plastic from the 1950s) ones I suppose. The wooden cas…

Wireless Vintage Madness: Philmore

Wireless Vintage Madness: Philmore
A Philmore radio. I cannot find out much about Philmore. A stamp on the back suggests that it's made in Japan.

虹桥国际机场 / 虹橋國際機場
The display was switching between Chinese and English... I caught the right or wrong moment (depends on what you think of the "ghosting" on the destination columns).

Until 1999, Shanghai Hongqiao Airport was the main airport serving the city. That year,…
