This is a great example of 1950′s television sets. I guess it was a showcase trailer for General Electric televisions. I do miss the old television sets. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not giving up my big screen, but wouldn’t it be nice if they made them in wood now days?

We got the set in late 1952 or early 1953; the photo is probably from the same time and was taken in Eugene, Oregon (USA). Until a local station started broadcasting, we only got a very fuzzy picture from a UHF station in Portland. The cable going off to the right went to a UHF antenna on top of a 40-foot mast on the roof; later in 1953, there was another cable going through the wall on the right connected to a VHF antenna lower on the mast to pick up signals from a new TV station in Eugene.
