Montreal radio in Wartime

Period: From April 19, 2015 to February19, 2016

On September 10, 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.

The exhibition received financial support from the Montreal Heritage: Enhancing Neighborhoods program.
