Special Radiator Centenary Edition

Radiator is one of the oldest print magazines in the country. May 1920 was the first issue but we marked the anniversary in June 2020 due to the disruption of Covid-19.

MTA has used the magazine to keep its members up to date with news, views and information relevant to them and their businesses for a century and we're still going strong. View the Radiator Centenary Issue 1920-2020 here >>
