Television is one of the most important daily innovations of all time and it is hard to imagine life without it. Before this public demonstration of a "television program", the thought of a box in your home streaming entertainment was completely foreign. While the idea had been around for a while and actual television sets had been displayed at fairs, this was the first "program" or "show" ever broadcast featuring entertainers and celebrities. It was made from Jersey City and the audience here was able to watch the show in New York City! All the fuss was about the small wooden box at center. Issued by the International News and in great shape, this is an important image from one of the mist influential days in entertainment history!
