Quoting a note from Nat, who supplied this scan: "... this is the
oldest reference to the "obsolescence of early TV sets" that I've
seen. The guy must have bought a big screen set, and is hauling the
"mutant crossbreed" of a Dumont Chatham "doghouse" and a
621-TS into his attic. Note the earlier victims of obsolescence, namely a
cathedral radio and a crank-up Victrola".
