TV Bank-1951


We've written here before about how anyone and everyone was trying to make you THINK you were getting TV (or better yet COLOR TV!) back in the fifties when it was hot, new and trendy...but expensive. Here's one from '51 that I'd never seen before--an ad for a TV Bank. I think from the sound of it that when you drop your money in the bank it activates a light on a small screen and shows you one of six different scenes. Did they actually move?? Not sure but either way I'll bet most folks who got it felt ripped-off...doubly so when their grandkids are now selling 'em on EBay!
