April 19, 2015 - March 15, 2016


On 10 September 1939, Canada declared war on Germany . During the six long years that followed, the radio will become the best tool to inform and entertain. The RCA factory, located in Saint-Henri, is now at the forefront of the development of mass communication. Military radios are becoming essential to the war effort . Its civilian radio sets inform the public on the latest developments at the front in the privacy of their home. Besides an information tool , radio also becomes a tool of propaganda and entertainment.


Home Depot Saint-Henri is proud to be associated with this exhibition project . We thank them!
