Television in the Student Digs

South-East London in 1991. A photocopy of a photo taken by my flat mate. Enjoying some early evening entertainment on the Invicta 697-chassied set.

Attractive floral blanket box as a TV stand. Prized Sharp VHS machine below and a newly acquired Sony C7 Betamax from the junk shop across the road. Amstrad Stereo speakers around the fire place.

A friend donated the Invicta set - he'd been using it in his damp bedsit, watching TV with the fizz and glow of corona around the anode cap. By the time we got it the mains filter cap had gone pop and necessitated some track repair on the EHT board.

Sold the set for a couple of pounds at a boot sale on leaving college. Back to a Bush Ranger black and white portable in my digs for my first job.
