Brownie No.2 Crystal Radio Receiver

The Brownie Wireless Co. Of Great Britain Ltd
No. 2 Model Crystal Receiver

Introduced in 1925, the Brownie No.2 crystal radio cost ten shillings and sixpence.  It featured a hydraulically moulded case and nickel plated fittings.  Its normal tuning range was up to 600 metres when used with a 100 feet longwire antenna but if owners wanted to listen to the longwave station 5XX (transmitting from Daventry), or the Eiffel Tower time signal station, then an optional plug-in loading coil could be purchased at a cost of two shillings and ninepence.
