RCA Victor

Inside the old cabin was a mess of broken furniture, old toys and miscellaneous junk. The treasure was this small-screen console TV with a built in amplifier and turntable. Zooming in on the full-size image, you can make out the script "RCA Victor."

SONY SLT-A77V 1/10 second F/13.0 ISO 400 36 mm (35mm equiv.)

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at My-Expressions.com. It is gone now.

@Ronnie 2¢: Oh, yeah, the days of 3 channels (in big cities, one or 2 other places). Of sign-off at midnight. Of "ghosty" images and repeatedly adjusting the rabbit ears/ Those were the days.

A fine shot that brings back memories. I had an RCA set much like this art one time. I thought it had a superior image. :-)
