HMV HM374T (1961)

The HMV HM374T was manufactured for His Master's Voice (New Zealand) Ltd by Various in 1961.

The HMV variant of the very popular Philips NZ 7-transistor portable radio.

Available in several colours, tan being the most popular.

Cabinets (among other locations no doubt) were produced in Christchurch in a cabinetmakers shop in Ferry Rd - A lady who's father owned the shop recalled making the tan cabinets and covering them as an after-school job in the 60's.  Does anyone recall the shop name?

There is a similar-looking model (HM373T ?) which has a gram input (switched using the local reception button) on the back for playing records.
