GEC television receiver, c 1949.

actual image size: 32cm x 19cm


A GEC 1091 9-inch television receiver which cost £54, 2 shillings and 8d (including tax) when new. The advertising for this set explained that viewers did not need to crowd together to watch (because the screen had a wide viewing angle) and that it was not necessary to draw the curtains - as it had a clear bright picture. The bakelite cabinet was more to deal with post-war timber shortages than for design aesthetics.
