Cost of a Baird Televisor
The following is from Peter Woods:
Price comparisons over time are invariably invidious, but £26 in 1930s
British sovereigns equated to 208 grammes of gold. Value today £2223 or
1 Womans winter coat
Not a cheap buy.
The plug on the Baird machine fitted a light socket because most 1930s
British homes had NO other electricity outlets. I remember being in
homes in the 1960s (not mine) where this was the case.
