Pre-1935 Baird Sets - UK
These three models of Baird mechanical scanning disc television sets were presented to the public, at the "Olympia" Radio Exhibition, on September 22 through 29, 1928. They are considered to be the first commercially-produced television sets in the world. Actual production quantities were low (dozens of units), however this modest beginning fostered the birth of the first television boom.
