Well, it’s been fun but this series has come to an end. We are left with a rather stained & overexposed shot of the TV again. The doors are closed this time. Still can’t find a brand name on it, so I’m sticking with my assumption that it’s a Zenith.
Nathan – Been following this series with interest. Thank you for posting these.
As to the make of the TV, there were many brands that made such cabinet TV/phonographs in the late 40s/early 50s. Zenith was but one. Philco, GE, Motorola, Sylvania, Andrea Radio Corp, and, what I think this is, Magnavox. The last image appears reversed when compared with the one with the test pattern. If you flip it and enlarge as much as it can handle, the maker’s name appears right under the TV screen. Somewhat longish name which appears to start with M. Looks similar to the script name on other Magnavox items of the period. Whatever it is, I’m guessing this unit was made before 1950. After 1950 most TV screens were more squared off, rather than the round style of this one.
Thanks for all the info, Todd! Glad to hear you’re enjoying the blog.
I don’t know why that last photo didn’t reverse like it should. I changed it in the media library, but it’s still the wrong way round. Have to have another look at it, I guess.
