Perry Como

If you go waaaaay back into the archives, you’ll find a similar shot to this one, as well as several other shots of this same TV screen.

WFMY-TV

Long time readers will remember the 1950’s Home Interior series I posted early on in this blog. This is another shot from that series. It’s the test pattern from WFMY-TV in Greensboro, NC. So far, this is the only concrete clue as to where The UP lived.

It’s the living room again!

All the photos posted this week are from a single strip of 127mm film. They’re all taken in & around The UP’s house.

We’ve seen this room & that TV before early on when I started this blog. I’d have to see all those photos were taken at the same time.

No words

This one is kinda weird.  I’m guessing it’s a shot of the television seen in previous posts.  Can anyone identify the gentlemen on the screen?  I thought it might be Paul Anka, but now I’m not so sure.

Vintage television

Another shoot of the living room TV.  Probably handheld, given  the amount of motion blur.

That TV again

A close up of the WFMY-TV test pattern.  Lots of camera shake, which comes with hand holding a camera at a low shutter speed.

1950’s Home Interior #7/7

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.
