THE DELIGHTS OF MULLARD BIG SCREEN TELEVISION IN THE 1950S

 

Now this really was quite the thing.  In the 1950's the availability of Lay-zee-boy chairs in the UK was but a wistful dream but they had big screen TV you know.  Today's Mullard archive photo shows the demonstration of range of six Mullard forward projection televisions of varying screen sizes up to a  maximum of 4 ft x 3 ft.  The official report states that viewers were wowed by the clarity and quality of the picture which was maintained despite relatively high ambient light conditions, no comment seems to have been recorded about the perceived comfort of the dining chair seating.
