MULLARD AT EARLS COURT RADIO SHOW 1953

How times change, these days, event stands are put up by gum chewing muscle bound chaps wearing Dickies work pants and steel toe capped boots, however, in 1953 as you see here, the Mullard stand at that years radio show was erected in all it's glitzy splendour by chaps in suits and ties - stirring stuff!

 

 

In 1953, Mullard had two locations at this venue.  First there was Stand 91 which boasted information centres for listeners and viewers as well as a comfortable lounge where commercial and technical problems affecting valves and cathode ray tubes could have been discussed with eager Mullard representatives.  In addition there was also Demonstration room D7 which was devoted to trade demonstrations of the MHSVT and the Expandabox system - more on this development and a hilarious story as well in a future blog!
