First TV in Taylor

First TV in Taylor

The July 6, 1949 Taylor Daily Press ran an article about the very first TV set in Taylor. Mr. Steinman on West 7th Street proudly showed off his brand new television to the newspaper reporter, apologizing for the poor reception and snow. Getting a good picture and good reception was a matter of luck and good antenna positioning. Lines, both vertical and horizontal, the “snow” on the screen, etc., were just a few of the problems.
