Matt's first TV. He was in high school and saved up and bought it himself. It didn't have a cabinet, so the tubes were exposed in the back. If we could turn it on, I'd expect "I Love Lucy" and "Milton Berle" to come roaring to life. Can't imagine watching anything like "Sons of Anarchy" on this set. It still exists only in a sweeter, gentler time.
What really amazes me is the thought that we had a world without any television, that people thought it was an invention that would just entertain, that no one suspected how it would take over our lives and shape our thoughts and influence the directions of our nations.
I had to drag it out in the attic this morning before leaving for work, so it didn't even get dusted off. Hey, we are all a little worse for wear since the 1950s.
