Someone dropped off one of these old two-in-one TV's at the Transfer Station...stereo phonograph player with the TV in the middle (this one was sitting upside down when I photographed it). This brought back the memories of being a young kid and scurrying over to my aunt and uncle's house one evening to see their new color TV for the first time...they probably had the first one in town when "living color" first came out. We watched Bonanza that evening (the Cartwright family). Those first color models were really not all that good, needless to say, but as a kid, I was quite impressed. The whole screen was filled with a lof of different shades of green...vibrant green...enough to maybe burn your retinas if you weren't careful. I remember my uncle jumping up and down (there were no remotes yet), adjusting the color so that we might catch a glimpse of some real skin tones on those actors...that never happened. He never changed channels to see if something else might be better...there was only one channel to choose from. Those were such "simple" days.
