In a previous picture I mentioned our family TV. But in that picture, the doors to it were closed, making it into a piece of blonde wood, mid-century modern furniture. It was a 1951 model RCA Kendall 17T174. We only had RCA TVs because my father worked at RCA Laboratories, in Princeton New Jersey, where he was involved in the development of color television. His slippers are on the floor behind me. To the right of them is a wheeled piece of blonde wood furniture that my mother called a tea wagon. Behind them all is a closer look at the very fifties fabric of the curtains my mother sewed for that living room. | Click image for Comments. | Home | Browse All Photos
