Wireless in Wales is a museum that celebrates the contribution of Wales to the evolution of radio technology and broadcasting. It is based in Denbigh and within the museum are a fascinating collection of radios and information, displaying some very early sets from the 1920’s to the 1960’s.
One of the sets at the museum has a small plaque on the lid stating that it was manufactured by Foulkes and son, Radio Engineers, High Street, Rhyl. The museum label adds that it is c. 1926 and is a four valve receiver.
As far as they are aware this is the only set in the collection that was manufactured in Wales and is therefore important to them as a case study.
The museum would love to know more about Foulkes and son, and see any photographs of them, their shop/workshop, other sets that they made, reminiscences about people visiting the shop/workshop etc. The link to the “Wireless in Wales” website is given below:
