Dot has been waiting impatiently at the window for the delivery van...

The driver has had some difficulty parking on the narrow pavement in front of the house

A rather racy-looking person descends from the cab of the van...

At first, Nan and Dot wonder if they and the smartly (unsuitably?) dressed delivery girl will get the heavy thing safely off the van...

Under Punch the dog's interested supervision, the deed is finally done...

Some rather unladylike things are said...

Dot calls anxiously, "Mind the paintwork, that HB decorator is far too busy to come and touch it up for us!"

Nan replies crossly, "She could have put a hall in this house, it's such a nuisance having to bring everything in through the kitchen."

"And talk of paintwork, the lazy thing never bothered to even make door frames, never mind paint them!!

"Let's just make sure nothing has got damaged."

At last, the heavy radiogram is safely in its corner and Dot drops exhausted on a disgruntled Punch.

She perks up when the first record begins to play, and tired Nan listens delightedly to the delicate strains...

With thanks to Zoe for her photos of the original radiogram, and apologies to Pit-a-Pat for faking one of their most delightful and desirable pieces
