Return to The Portable Collection

This is the last variant of the 'Stroller' - the flimsy cover has been dropped. The release date is 'presumed' as the literature (see below) is dated '3/53' and this seems a reasonable interval from the release of the previous model.

This model has also been seen in a red/white diamond check pattern - Cole's were being a little different! But the case is still bulky to take the large batteries required for the 48mA LT consumption.
