 Grand Wireless Concert ticket, Palmerston North, 1923

In 1923 private radio receivers were still enough of a rarity that public events could be held based around radio listening. This is a ticket for a 'concert' at the Palmerston North Opera House, where the public paid to listen to a radio show broadcast live from Auckland.
