Pic of the Day 22 Feb 05 "Radio Pélissier"


Tour de France, 1931. Stage 16, Gap-Grenoble. After the finish, Charles Pélissier (right) speaks before the microphone of "Intran-Match", while André Luducq (left) watches. From "Match l'Intran" No.254, 21 July 1931.

I assume the (scarf?) around the microphone frame is used to keep the wind noise down when the vehicle is moving. They are probably recording interviews, or could they transmit from here to the radio truck, then on to the full-size transmitters? Any vintage radio technicians out there? Gotta love the radio man dressed like a bomber crewman!
