EMG Wire recorder ?

Post by Gmemg » Tue Apr 03, 2018 8:26 pm

A strange thing has been photographed and sent to me - probably the least likely person to actually know about anything other than a mechanical item but there we are ! - It's a totally genuine item made by EMG apparently Post War and is a Wire recorder !

Anyone else seen one ?

I'd be very interested to hear more about this myself!
I know somebody who owns an incredible collection of radio recordings on wire from the 1940s, really histocal stuff, and not even I can transfer those things!

I remember back around 1953 being shown a wire recorder by our next door neighbour, who was the manager of a entertainment hall in Ponders End, Enfield, Middlesex, and as a boy interested in crystal sets and the like, being amazed that the rather roughly wound spools of wire could contain music and speech sounds.

Just because it may interest someone, I wondered where the name Ponders End for the area where I lived, came from - thinking it might have something to do with deep thinking. Many years later, I discovered that it was actually named for the place where fish were bred for the monks at Waltham Abbey - possibly with the ponds being located near the River Lea.
