This vintage snapshot features two enthusiastic men manning their ham radio station. The large desk that these men are sharing hosts numerous electronic devices. The electrical wires that power this station seems to be jerry rigged. It appears to be an electricity nightmare and I doubt this amateur set-up would pass an official fire or electronic inspection. Note the telephone, table radio and typewriter captured in this photograph. These two ham radio operators seem to be having a good time pursuing their hobby. It is possible that the men are actually at work and performing their duties utilizing the radio. The poor, and possibly dangerous wiring, leads me to believe that the men are amateurs and that this ham radio station is a home set-up.   SOLD

  1. This looks a lot like my dad’s old amateur radio setup, which was also complete with dodgy wiring! I suspect people worried less about health and safety in those days 😉

  2. Amateurs no doubt. Good find!
