Philco Television Set, 1948

Philco Television Set, 1948
A photo of outdated technology (typewriters, record players, etc) for the Vintage Photos Theme Park.

This is a photo of a Philco 48-1001 television set, which was manufactured in 1948 and had a 10-inch television screen. I bought this along with a second photo showing 1948 Republican presidential nominee Thomas Dewey and his wife at the Republican National Convention, which was held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in June 1948. The image of Dewey and his wife is actually a photo of the screen of this TV set taken during the broadcast of the Republican convention, which was the first nationally televised presidential convention. See also a cropped version of the second photo.

We didn't get a TV until towards the end of the 1950s

toute une époque !
déjà finie !
Qui regarde encore la télévision ?( dont les programmes d'ailleurs sont devenu tellement répétitifs et débiles) , avec Internet on a immensèment plus de liberté, de qualité, et d'esprit critique, que dans cet outil de propagande comme les médias de masse, propriétés de 9 milliardaires, sont devenus.
Il est bien passé maintenant le temps où les gens se rassemblaient devant le "petit écran" pour passer leurs soirées bien au chud, et où les matins au bureau le premier sujet de conversation était de commenter le programme de la veille, que tout le monde avait plus ou moins vu ! ça créait un lien.

Also, after tv shows, the excitement in the school yard!
I remember going into school in England the day after Dr. Who had first aired! The kids were wild! I remember the boys going around saying "I am A Dahlik" (Or however you spell it.) It must have been 1962/63, I think.
Anyway, amazing historical photos, Alan. Wonderful finds.

Dr. Who!! My brother loved that show, though I'm not sure what year it made it here. He still loves the first doctor. I came to Dr. Who decades later through my daughter and the re-booted show. Now I try and watch all the old ones as well. I just love the spirit of how one can do more than one thinks one can and that we are here together.

Wow! An incredibly early set. Very interesting. I think we got our first set, a round-screened Zenith, in about 1952. It was in a cabinet with a set of doors that closed over the screen when it was not in use.
