This is a commercially made crystal radio from the 1920s known as the Pandora Crystal Radio, made by the Brooklyn Metal Stamping Company.  It didn't require a power source to operate, just an antenna, a ground connection and a pair of headphones. 

It was owned by Dave Lecain, VE1AFU and came into my possession when he became a silent key in 1993.  I have passed it on to Hart, VE1HRT who plans to restore it and put it in his collection of antique radio equipment.

Can anyone identify these pictures?

Picture by the late Barak Smith (VE1IC) taken in 1980 when our VHF repeater was at the CBC tower site in Wellington.  VE1RB and VE1GM were working on the antenna from a small platform at the 410 foot level that is on the left side of the tower in the picture.
