On the Halifax advert Parker the chauffeur's microphone is actually a
belling socket.


I actually noticed that a couple of days ago. meant to post something
here, but forgot.

There was quite a lot of familiar electronics stuff in the shows, one
can imagine Gerry and Sylvia touring the electronics emporia on
Tottenham Court Road for props. Props from proops!

I spent many an hour in the late 50s and early 60s down the Tottenham
Court Road in Proops, Z & I Aero, and the like. But let's not forget
Lisle St. There were a lot of great shops there too.

None left in London for many years AFAIAA, and I know of only one shop
in the UK now which sells old government surplus electronics gear (in
Lincoln). Are there any others?
