Early Broadcast Equipment
KTBX-TV Mobile Van
This picture was sent to us by Richard Gray of New Orleans. He found it
in Bay Saint Louis, MIssissippi, and says it has been there for years. I
found no record of a KTBX-TV, channel 15.
This is from Carl's Photo Gallery (http://www.anniemayhem.com/portfolio/):
Now this is another mystery for me. What the heck is
an old 60�s era television station van doing in Bay St.
Louis? Is one of the residents a collector of television
station memorabilia and restored this to original form?
Could it be a prop from some movie long ago and someone owns
it as a collectible? Did I enter the Twilight Zone? Who
knows? If someone does know, please email me. I've done
plenty of research online and found absolutely no record of
a KTBX-TV Channel 15 station corresponding to this van nor
any "AIF Productions" (seen on the rear of the van).
Furthermore, the lack of a network logo of any kind on the
van leads me to believe that this may have actually been a
prop for a TV show or movie and that someone in Bay St.
Louis collected it and maintained it.
