On January 23, 1926, John Logie Baird (of Scotland) gave the world's first public demonstration of a mechanical television apparatus to approximately 40 members of the Royal Institution at his laboratory on Frith Street. These were images of living human faces, not outlines or silhouettes, with complete tonal gradations of light and shade.
Early Colour Television
The article below was published in the British "Journal of The Television Society", in September 1941. It not only shows the first photograph ever taken of a television screen in 1926, but also gives an glimpse of Baird's experimental 600-line colour television system, which includes the FIRST photograph of a colour television screen ever published.
What is amazing, is that Baird continued to develop this set in private, in spite of the on-going World War at the time. This is mentioned as a side comment in the article. Color television did not arrive in the UK until 1967, through BBC-2, more than a quarter century later.
