History:

Bullock’s Cycle and Gramophones manufactured bicycles in the early 1900’s. In 1910 they started to import gramophones.[1]

Around 1925 the company started to import radios and parts and advertised 4 valve sets unassembled £7/-, assembled and tested, £15/12/6. They also changed their name to Bullock’s Cycles and Radio.[2] They sold Atwater Kent radios[3] and by the early 1930’s were selling Regent Radios made in south Australia.[4] Advertising indicates they dropped the radios and concentrated on cycle manufacture and sales from 1932 until the early 1950’s.
