it's a cozy room and a great place to kick off your shoes and watch!!!
That can't be a TV... it looks more like an old radio Bill...
i enjoyed the video of TV Caesar....petersmile
Bill Phillips: This is a TV! I would think a 9 inch screen....doesn't seem possible now. We only had one channel in the early 50s and that was the BBC
What is the green chair facing? Who's house is that?
Bill Phillips: So many questions!! The chair is vaguely facing the fireplace and the house belongs to Avoncroft museum of buildings in Bromsgrove.

I think this is 1940s chic
Bill Phillips: Early 50s I would think Chris

I like the shoes - but where is the man? In bed? An interesting sight into private rooms at former times - 1940s chic? - Chris might be right- but television began later! We had our first tv in the 1970s.
Bill Phillips: This is early 50s I think Philine. Certainly the TV is of that time I would think. We had our first TV in about 1954 in the days when it used to shut down for a while in the early evening to put the children to bed!

Much to remember here - before fitted carpets, the brass wire fire guard, mantle piece clock, picture rail and of course the early tv. Mind you I don't think we had a black bin bag stuffed up the chimney! Late 50's early 60's.
Bill Phillips: No the black bag is out of place grin. The TV is early 50s I would think

I have an old radio (wireless) in an outhouse that could do with some restoration, Bill - do you know anyone who could do it?
Bill Phillips: Chris would do it for you but I doubt if it would ever work again
A blast from the past
Bill Phillips: Things have changed a bit in the last 50 years or so!
Are you and Michael living together now Bill, judging by your photo's today, it's highly suspicious...
Bill Phillips: Yes it is a bit worrying.
Only missing the kitty.
Bill Phillips: Indeed so Mary
I bet there's a good few of us remember this sort of front room style, and that tele is almost identical to the first one my parents bought, a 9" Bush.
Bill Phillips: We had a 12inch one I think in about 1954
Very cozy looking, Bill, although, that seems like quite a complicated fireplace setup.
Bill Phillips: An open fire but with an electric fire in front of it
I love the cosy 50/60's atmosphere Bill!
Bill Phillips: Memories of our childhood Richard?

A remember a "Whiter Shade of Pale". Do you have a wind up gramophone in your loge to play such music? You seem to have all the latest equipment , including a box Brownie. I bet on the TV would can still get all the proper shows for the 1960s.
Bill Phillips: I have got a record deck and can play my old vinyl!

I expect that TV was slimline in its day! I was note taking in a lecture the other day and the lecturer (who looked about 16 to me) said to his students "0hhhh I remember the days when there were only 4 channels to choose from" and I was thinking to myself "I can remember when there was only ONE channel and that was in black and white" hey ho!
Bill Phillips: I know it is a sobering thought.
