Here's a little quiz for you all, a photo of a period 1970s lounge, name the TV manufacturer and model. I'm sure it won't tax too hard the seasoned TV veterans among our ranks. For those of you not so familiar and struggle a little, well the main blog has a section that will provide the answer, if you seek it.

I'd have said "Murphy CV2210" but the stand isn't right...

Younger readers will assume the picture above the mantelpiece is a TV! 😊

Dual standard Murphy CTV but no idea of model number. Two aerial wires and a 6 push button dual band tuner makes me thinks it is dual standard.

I tend to agree there. The stand almost looks like an after-thought.

My parents used to have a gas fire like the one in the picture.

I would feel quite at home in either of the two lounges pictured above. They are very typical of the kind of lounge that, as a child being taken to various relatives in the 70's, I would be eager to go and fiddle with their TV set and promptly be told off.

I remember a similar gas fire in the house of a friend, I don't remember seeing it switched on to see the flame effect red bulb under the fibreglass logs.

Sometimes I would take an interest in TVs when I was young but wouldn't be tempted to adjust anything.
