The scans directly above are for an April 1934 article written about using the Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) for television purposes.  The very first scan shows a photograph taken directly from the face of the (picture) tube.  Although electronic television was not launched in the USA until April 1939, exactly five years later, this article shows how much progress had been made since the first lab experimentation with these CRTs around 1930-31.
