Pam 710 transistor receiver, introduced in 1956. Complete Pam 710 receiver created by Pye Ltd, Cambridge, England.

Designed in Cambridge by Pye Ltd, this was the first all-transistor radio to be designed and made in Britain. Though no smaller than a contemporary ‘valve’ portable and appreciably dearer (30 guineas, which is roughly £31.50), it performed just as well and was a great deal cheaper to run.
