BLIND MAN'S RADIO. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 13 May 1926

BLIND MAN'S RADIO. Among. a.number of extraordinary exhibits shown at the Radio and Electrical Exhibition last week in Sydney was a two valve set built by Mr. Frank Downes; the blind Digger. It is a wonderful piece of work. Mr. Downes knows each wire in the set by the numlber of knots he has tied in it and he has a system also of identifying the colors of the wires. He drilled every hole himself and built the cabinet unaided. The direc tor of the exhibition provided Dig ger Downes with a season ticket and the blind man was there daily, wan dering about the stalls. He enjoyed "seeing" the exhibits and seemed to find his way round as well as anyone.
