The learners then returned to the Albany History Museum to do final touches to the exhibition layout. Ms Lambley then joined them again and they explained their layout of the exhibition entitled “Stay Tuned”. The exhibition will be presented to the Grahamstown Historical Society on 18 August and local information on the history of radios and telephones will be added.
Thanks go to Messrs B September and Mr S Mageza and Mrs P Yame-Maselana for the preparations for the exhibition. Thank also go to Mr Dudley Forsyth, a radio enthusiast from Grahamstown for inspiring the exhibition and Mr Michael Japp of “Delmore” who lent us a scrapbook belonging to his grandfather, William Japp, who was a member of the Albany Radio Society of Grahamstown which met between 1924 -7 in the Physics Department at Rhodes University.
