Roberts Portable Radio

The red leatherette-covered radio. A classic of plain understatement and so typically English-looking... After I passed my driving test in 1965, my mother lent me hers and I would drive around in my Morris Minor with it perched above the rear seat. It sounded great, though as it was rather solidly built, it was a bit of a hazard during heavy braking! The great thing is, they're still on sale. So many homes had these in various colours. An icon for sure!
