I recognized the Philco and GE right away.
The GE looks strange without the UHF tuner knob. Is that the hybrid chassis?

I think the GE is an all tube set, but I may be wrong. It is an "instant on" set, were those not all tube?

Yes, the table set is a Philips and the console is also a Philips, but from the 1960/61 period ( mine is from February 1961, according to a factory sticker it has on the back cover ).

One can say that any TV set was a luxury item in Brazil in the 1950's. But yes, those in the picture are among the more expensive models available here at that time.

One can say that really affordable, like, more or less easy for a poor man to buy one, probably around 1970. But even though TV sets were expensive in the 1950's and early 60's , the industry never had a bad year here since the introduction of television in 1950. During the 50's every year saw a significant growth in sales compared to the predecessing year, and it is quite amazing considering how small the middle class was in Brazil at that time.

Tv is a cheap source of fun for the people. A family with low incomes can't go to arestaurant or a concert (maybe very rare), but can watch tv.
Maybe that's why telenovelas took off in Latin America (ha, Romania is a big consumer of Latin American and Turkish soap operas; Romanians are distant cousins of Brazilians).

Indeed, both the Romanian language and Portuguese are Latin languages with a lot of things in common.

The telenovelas might have took off because of the reasons you mentioned, but I do believe that they also did because the peoples of Spanish and Portuguese origin are very emotional people. The fact that we also have a lot of people who originated from Italy might have helped too...

Here in Brazil a lot, and I really mean a lot, of people ( myself included ) do believe that the Golden Age of telenovelas is long gone. True, they still reach good ratings, but not like in the past, like between the 1960's and early 1990's. Sure, the Internet and cable TV might have contributed to this decline, but the reason most people here say is the main cause is the fact that the telenovelas are no longer a family oriented entertainment. The plots are getting more and more scandalous, there are a lot of characters with very questionable morality doing things that the average housewife feel ashamed to see on the TV. Of course, I am talking about the telenovelas of Rede Globo, that is still the most powerful Brazilian network. I think the telenovelas from Rede Record might be a little different, because that network belong to a church. I don't know, it has been many years since I watched a novela for the last time.
