Of course the sets were huge, the tubes small and round not at all like today. I remember our first set was larger than the console radio, phonograph dad had brought home one day. And of course it cost a lot more too. I think our first set retailed for $125 and this was a lot for the time too, plus the antenna, rotor, and installation of them. One could get a wad of cash invested in a TV. Funny thing was so many felt they needed a TV so went out of their way to get one.
If at the time one would tell of how things are today they would have been run out of town on a rail. In fact there are so many things today that are so different and would never have been thought of or about in my youth it amazes me frequently. I sit down now and again and think of all the things that have changed or came about in my life time and it is scary. There are so many things today that were not even consider or thought of in my youth. I hate to think of what is to come, is it more and better or less and not so good?
