Advances In TV
in 1948, people dreamed of lying in the bathtub, smoking a cigar, and watching a tiny TV set: Portable Television.
The gentleman shown above luxuriously sprawled in his bathtub is enjoying the newest thing in television-a portable set. (He also is risking electrocution because either a radio or TV set can kill a wet bather if he so much as touches it.)
His set, made by the Sentinel Radio Corporation, has a small collapsible antenna, a 7-inch screen, and sells for $206.90 complete.
