Mechanical Television

Hollis Baird Model 437


This set was owned by Fred Cole of Coles Radio and TV in Kinston, NC. His grandson Billy Stallings and his family loaned it to the North Carolina Museum of History in Raleigh in 1993, where it is now on display. This extremely rare set has a model 36 televisor on top, and a chassis similar to the model 35 in the cabinet below.

 These pictures were taken when the set was in the possession of Fred Cole.
