Magnets Bulbs and Batteries

By Steve Bush 7th March On the radio yesterday morning were some interviews with folk that were in at the start of Ladybird Books. I had forgotten all about that title, but a copy of that Ladybird Book was one of the childhood inspirations that got me into electronics. I also remember that the page on series connection had a string of three bulbs connected in series, and that the one nearest the positive battery terminal was the brightest, and the one nearest the negative terminal was dimmest, as I recall — so either the artist was given an odd set of bulbs, or someone thought that electricity ran out as it went around the circuit….?

Ladybird Series 621 - Magnet Bulbs and Batteries Pages - 36&37

There's absolutely no doubt that I was something of a geeky child. I had a chemistry set and also a selection of batteries, bulbs and electric wires. I also had a magnet set that I loved so much that when I saw the same one for sale on eBay last year in new condition I bought it instantly to put away for Little Miss C and her, then still a bump, baby brother. It's no wonder that I went on to study physics and chemistry at A-Level and engineering at university. I would have loved the Ladybird Junior Science Book Magnets, Bulbs and Batteries — in fact some of the projects look so familiar that I am actually wondering if I did own a copy when I was younger, or if not it must have been a very similar book.

I have now bought a copy on eBay, scanned it to a PDF file and uploaded it to the documents section of my Vintage Radio Info website - it's the last link in the first section. It's quite large 9.

Someone suggested that I could get this Ladybird Book on eBay and after making some searches and a couple of unsuccessful bids, I finally got a copy. It was better than I remembered, the images of little kids with pliers ripping open batteries, and sticking tongues across battery terminals. Those were the days before health and safety, fantastic. Had a great call today from a nice chap — he phoned to give me some feedback on an aspect of our website and as I like to do, I chatted to him about what he did.
