Mrs. R. Downer in southern England

from A Bygone Age, page 24:

We had now got electricity, and my son was very interested in Radio and I think we were one of the first people to have a wireless set. Mrs X [a long-standing client] wrote to me and said “how pleased I am that you will be able to listen to nice music and programmes while you are sewing’. That certainly was a great pleasure to me and I often think that the music and variety turns were better than they are today.
