Postcard #6. Marconi

Tony from Castlemaine requested anything to do with Marconi, who was of course the inventor of radio and Tony, being a keen radio amateur wanted something commemorating him. I went to one of the Marconi Universities in Rome, which was a singularly uninspiring building, so nothing useful there, but I took photographs of the logo and I decided to investigate Marconi himself a little further.

One thing that struck me when looking around for information about him were his notebooks. There had even been an exhibition of them and so I bought an old lined ledger and drew some sketches of my own. In the finished postcard you will see Marconi, his radio devices, a radio tower, the university logo, the Nobel Prize, which of course he won, and his signature.
