Atwater Kent Model 70

Type L Chassis.  This radio belonged to my greatgrand parents.  I remember the frame of the original speaker laying on the ground outside the "smokehouse" at the ranch when I was a small boy.  It was discarded many years ago.  I recently purchased a NOS speaker in the original box.

Zenith 5-S-127
This radio was nearly destroyed from being wet.
Probably should have been junked for parts but
I just couldn't trash a 127. Restoration should
be complete later this year.  I was hoping
to be finished by now but too much going on.
