Default Re: Very rusty ViewMaster TV

One advantage of building your own TV set from a kit of parts was that there was purchase tax to pay. The tax on TVs radios and radiograms was pretty punitive in those days. One just has to look at the price lists of electrical goods on sale in the early 1950s.

Hi John, I haven't got any orange boxes but there is a sheet of plywood outside in the back yard. I reckon I could make you a cabinet from that.
Real MacArthur Park stuff, like the cake it was left out in the rain.
