On display at the Akron Toy Marble Museum were early telvisions, TV memorabilia, TV show games and TV personalities of the 50’s and 60’s. It’s hard to relate to the challenges of early black and white sets, but ya gotta love um.
Not sure when this TV came out. Was it 1950’s or early 60’s? This is a Philco brand and the screen is about 19″ diagonal B&W set sitting on a high base. Amazing how far TV has come in 50 years.
Beautiful TVs all of them. The bottom model, Predicta’s, came out in the 50s. They remain a quintessential icon of the Atomic Age. I don’t own this floor model but I have a stunning red table model, exact same screen mounted on a cabinet about 2 1/2 feet long and 10 inches high, weighing as much as a car.
I absolutely love old TVs. For the most part I’m more into portables but I love television so much I’ve never seen an ugly TV in my life.
I’ll be visiting this wonderful collection of TV history soon and snap more pictures.
