Domestic Advertisements: Ferranti Table Radio Model 115, 215, 515 and Radiogram 415

This trader advert from December 1951 shows off the range of pretty dull radios and a radiogram.  However, at five vales each, they are trying to aim for the top end of the performance range (models are left to right, top to bottom).  The model 515 is odd by being totally back to front symmetrical!

Good News for Ferranti Dealers

We think we’ve never produced a bigger, better, more varied range than this year’s Ferranti selection. And we think that the public are going to show that they agree with us. In the National Press they will be seeing the sets shown here, and many others. Have you got sufficient information to meet all their enquiries? If not, please write to us for full particulars.
