TV in the past

Owning a television set in the 60s and 70s was probably like a luxury but now it’s like a necessity. Just like nowadays, buying a 21″ CRT tube tv is so difficult as most are selling those LCDs or Plasma type!

Our second TV in the past (70s) are something like this one; 

It was considered very grand to have a box liked fixture to contain the TV. The box can be closed by sliding a door. Most TVs channels are selected by turning a knob.

Here are some samples of the advertisements in the newspapers on TVs in the 60s;

Some of the popular brands are Siera, Setron, Sharp, National and Telefunken.

Not many people owned a TV set at home in the 60s and the early 70s. So some of them gathered at the community centres to watch their favourite TV programmes ;

Needless to say, our first TV set was Black and White, then slowly changed to a coloured TV set. The first generation of coloured TV was horrible – I mean the colour quality compared to now.
