I remember my grandmother’s house having the sameold TV foryears. It was one of those clunky, boxy numbers that required at least seven different adjustments to the many knobs and dials to get just one channel to come in clearly.
As frustrating as it could be, it was also a fascinating glimpse into the past. Television designs back then were a far cry from the flat screens with megapixel clarity we have today.
Just like the shows they projected into our homes, the sets themselves evolved over the decades. Sometimes it was for the better, like moving away from the itty-bitty porthole screens. Other times, though, the designs left you scratching your head and wondering howyou were even supposed to turn the darn thing on.
Take a look to see some of thevintage TVs folks relied onway back in the day and let us know in the comments if you remember having one in your home.
