Tower Radio Ltd c1964
Rent a TV for 8s 6d
I found this sales booklet from Tower Radio and dated 1964 fascinating, not only as I am currently putting together some of the history of the Company for the archive but because of all the items that are advertised within the booklet and the prices. I have added a couple of the pages in the gallery for you to see. How about a TV with only three channels and in black and white you could get one for 72gns and just look at those radios and tape recorders. I had one just like that.
Or you could rent a 19” TV for 8/6 per week, that’s about 42p in today’s currency.
In the gallery below you can also see pictures of the store in Furtherwick Road that opened in 1961. It had a pram department on the first floor and a walk round Toy Department as well as their electrical department. The service department was situated behind the shop and accessed from the rear of the property.
