We have a group of photographers, Cesar, Remi and Mohammed, who volunteer their time and talents to Parkwood NHS to photograph our artefacts for our collection management records and condition reporting. They do beautiful work capturing the story of the Parkwood artefacts on film, and we enjoy sharing their talents with you. Here are some of the Parkwood Radio Collection. The radios represent an interesting array of a style and composition materials, representing the late 1920s through the mid 1950s, a snap shot into the world of technology artefacts that represent the fluidity of the Parkwood artefact collection capturing moments of time of the 20th century.
