Sharp morning frost changing to rain. Bitterly cold cloudy day. Did all the shopping in morning. Miss Dickson did 4 hours cleaning as usual. Alan Spooner brought aero - with new tail he has made to show me. To Mrs Winsley's to examine her wireless which has failed. Found output transformer broken down. Lent her my Celestion loudspeaker for the time being. She was pleased to hear it going again.
Note: Celestion was a local company (click Celestion ), now with a fascinating international history, including it is thought, the first dedicated guitar loudspeaker; the company history, through mergers, can be traced to this day.
