When you wander down Adelaide's streets and through its laneways you'll come across many old buildings that have now changed hands. The signs remain long after the businesses have vacated. This Gerard & Goodman factory is one such place, revealing a peak back into Adelaide's history.

This corner of Adelaide was a Mecca for electronics enthusiasts in Adelaide in the 70's. Gerard & Goodmans catered for larger corporate buyers, while Mack's electronics a few doors down sold individual components such as transistors and resistors to the more thrifty minded.

For used equipment such as military surplus radios and other components, these old time geeks would scour Robby's Electronics on Long St Port Adelaide, or Louis Cann's on the Parade in Norwood.

Yep, I bought many bits and pieces to build my radios and other electronics projects. Remember Thodays? They were the days.
