Assuming that the Broadcast News art department, RCA's marketing department, or WFIL's PR department used an actual shot of the WFIL TK-41 and not a mock-up or a retouched photo of a demonstrator, this is probably the same camera I saw at WFIL-TV in 1959. This shot predates my "TeeVeeSpotting" (an Early-Television equivalent of trainspotting) by two or three years.
