Old photos of TV's

I was going through the family photo box and found this old picture of my Grammas TV circa 1955:






OK, I lied, this is my Philco circa 2002 and I Photoshopped it to look like an old photo

Mystery lady

Here's another eBay photo, a nice clear screen shot of?? maybe a game show? perhaps a relative snapped the photo as a memento in the pre-VCR age

It's dark but the shape of the screen is easy to identify as an RCA Deluxe portable.

This is a picture of the first long distance relay of TV. The signal originated in New York City, was relayed by the GE station in Schenactady, and was picked up at a weather station on Whiteface Mountain near Lake Placid, NY. The set is a GE HM-171 5 inch (no RF amplifier, so the noise figure was horrible).

I like those old Golden Hour clocks on top of the TV's! I refurbished several of those back when I was a watchmaker in a jewelry store.

This photo was taken in September or October of 1950, during the very first days of regular TV broadcasting here in Brazil. Daily transmissions began on September, 18.

That one was taken in 1952 or 1953. The clown in the picture hosted a popular kids show in one of the three TV stations we had in Brazil at that time.

old tv photo with not so old Marlin

Hey guys, lookie what I found in my family archives (meaning junk box).
It is me at about a year and a half of age in front of the Christmas tree, which is in front of our 1949 Transview 12" tv. I have a modern shot of that set on my web site. http://home.earthlink.net/~marlinmackley and click on the television collection.

Christmas 1971

Here is me and our old Zenith... Christmas 1971. Marlin, looks like you and I both got bikes for Christmas... although it appears that your photo was taken way before '71!

Cool

Great pictures guys!

Marlin, is that the "Triumph" on your page? How cool that you still have your original TV!

Capt Video, that is the scariest looking clown ever
He would give kids nightmares I think

Eric,

That great looking 12" set is a 9TC247. I have the same model with doors known as 9TC249. The same chassis was used in a 9TC245 which I also have. Here is a shot of my 9TC245.
