Back in 1948/49 by folks purchased a Admiral Television with a 7" screen. There was five of us huddled around this 7" screen trying to watch Ted Mack's Original Amateur Hour or Captain Video, Lone Ranger. My dad went out and bought a TV screen magnifier. It seems to me that back in those early days there were no TV shows that came on until noon to nine pm? Now we have 80" screens with 24/7 programming.

    Wow, in '49 that must have been "the" coolest thing in the world.
