WLW-TV in 1948

It's 1948, and you have $15,000. You can buy a couple of very nice homes, 10 or 12 Crosley automobiles, or one of these B&W television cameras--complete with custom logo. Actually, Crosley Broadcasting got together $75,000 to buy five of the cameras for WLW-TV. By this time Powel Crosley, Jr. was strictly in the background, occupying a seat on the AVCO board of directors but focused on saving Crosley Motors. (Click picture for larger image.)
