Crystal Radio

Crystal RadioThis handmade Crystal Radio set features a brown stained wooden case with hinged lid. It was made by Paul Haward who was born in England in 1898 and immigrated with his family to Regina in 1912. This set is a primitive type of radio using a crystal detector to receive signals, instead of an electron tube. 
Paul Haward lived on College Avenue from 1924 to 1966 and ran the Regina Press Ltd. with his brother George. Their family donated the radio set to the museum in 1988.

Trivia

After its invention in the 1890s, radio quickly became a popular medium for delivering information and entertainment. Most evenings, especially during the cold winter months, the family would gather around the radio for amusement.
