Antique wireless reproductions

I've written before about my father's interest in early wireless sets and now you can see some of his work up close in Reproduction of a British Gecophone Crystal Radio.

Granted I'm probably biased, but I've always been really impressed by the quality of my dad's reproductions. His attention to detail and ability to improvise never cease to amaze me. But in the case of this particular set, I most enjoyed hearing him tell me about these wonderful strangers around the world who, because of their shared interests, had sent him schematics, manuals and even some sheet mica to build the capacitor. Geeks are so cool.
