My weakness for vintage tv’s has led to my greatest find yet – a lovely atomic-era Admiral portable TV.
Why do I love this tv? Is it because I can picture Harry on Mad Men watching it in the office? Is it because of the awesome blue green sparkle finish? Is it because this TV sits so jauntily in the corner of the shop? Who am I to question love at all?
One thing bothers me though – it relies on an analog signal, which is no longer used. Even though this puppy works (although I am sure you need to let it warm up first), I may never get to see what the screen looks like in action. even worse, the adapters on the back are archaic and cannot bridge the digital/analog gap. No more I Love Lucy episodes for this Admiral! Booo!
