This collection contains photographs of 1950s television, largely produced for press and marketing purposes. The photographs include photographs of early television publicity events and demonstrations (including the Festival of Britain in 1951), television production and broadcasting equipment (projectors, screens, remote control units, control pads and microscopes), television studios and production spaces, as well as photographs of early television content from this period.
These photographs are believed to have been collected by writer Ray Herbert.
