What can you learn from the industry's past?

People have been trying to zap television commercials long before TiVo.
I saw these on a trip to San Francisco for a pitch. The SFO airport has a cool exhibit called Television: TV in the Antenna Age.
They have a great display capturing the history of television from the 1940s through the 1970s.
My favorite piece was this Zenith porthole set.
My Grandfather passed down to me the first television set our family ever owned. (Same model but a different year.)

You can see more great shots from the exhibition on their site.

(This December, I'm posting all the ads I never got around to earlier this year. Stay tuned.)
