Does anyone remember this event? The HMV901 with its loudspeaker removed is obvious, not sure about the next one but the third is a Baird T5 and the fourth might be another T5. The second one might be an Ekco TSC902. The HMV901 looks to have veneer damage bottom left. I think this must be an exhibition of vintage televisions.

Peter,

 

This looks an unusual place for knobs.

Thanks Jac I hadn't spotted that so possibly a KB780.

I wondered if the fourth set might be an RCA RR359 because its height is about right if the set to its left is a T5 and it appears to have projections on the left and right of its lid. It also has a lid prop on the left.

Quoting Kevin (McMurdo):

"I've just done a reverse image search. It's apparently a 1949 display at the studios of the Japanese Broadcasting Company in Tokyo. If you look carefully the folks in the pic are distinctly oriental. It's an AP photo archive picture."

Forum 142

Visitors to the television demonstration at the studios of the Japanese Broadcasting Company wait for the show to appear on the screen of one on the receivers, in Tokyo, March 27, 1949. These receiving sets, which will have screens measuring eight by ten inches, are not ready for the market yet. (AP Photo/Charles P. Gorry)

Hi Peter.

Please could you update the link, it returns 404 page not found. There is an error with the .jpg (space between the p and g) and I think it doesn’t like the full stops in the url.

thanks

Mod Note:

correct, Peter copied in a truncated link (the dots), nothing to do with the forum and the quotes were unnecessary as it would never have worked.

It's a bit weird. I followed it with a close quotes and the forum software seems to detatch the final g.

I'm thinking my suggestion of the fourth set being an RCA RR359 doesn't seem so unlikely now. I still have no clue as to the third set. I'm fairly sure it's not a T5 because it doesn't have a sloping control panel and the speaker frets are the wrong size.

Anyway here it is without quotes: Forum 143
