David's Other Hobby - Antique Radios and TVs

David's other hobby is collecting antique radios and televisions.  He has a collection of around 200 sets, dating from 1921 to as late as the 1950's.  Most of them are currently restored and working.  The collection does not really have a particular "focus", but the majority of the sets are 1920's battery sets and early AC sets.   The manufacturer with the most representation is Atwater Kent.  

In addition to the radios and TVs, there are also antique slot machines and clocks (previous hobbies).
