Atwater Kent model 44

This was the first complete vitage radio I collected and it came to me from my eldest Brothers Father Inlaw. It came complete with a Model E2 loud speaker and a 210/240 Volt to 110 Volt transformer that is still in good condition today.

The Rodaphone

Does any one have any information on this radio and/or on the company Rodda and Stevens ?

The Rodaphone came from the fellow who's Grand Father bought it new in about 1925 and will not need much restoration.
I have made a new shaft for the pot with the knob missing in the photos, and found a couple of valves to replace the broken onest.
I have also found several 1920's loud speakers to use with this radio.

Operatic (Bland Radio) early "Coffin"

Does anyone have some information about this radio ?. I have an empty Amplion Cone Speaker box to go with this radio but I am looking for either an original driver or details on how to make one out of a headphone insert.
