Mullard Antiques

All I Want For Christmas Is Memories! Hi everyone, Today, is the first of December, and I wanted to celebrate the start of advent with you by sharing a post entitled All I Want For Christmas Is Memories. Intrigued? Then please continue reading! What does Christmas mean to you?

Thank you, Mullard Magic, for this lighthearted look at Women working at the Mullard Valve factory in the 1950s. Great images! According to Mullard (the manufacturer’s of thermionic valve products), ‘The Mullard High Speed Valve Tester was so simple to use anyone could use it’.  Mullard made…
