Postwar American Television
Chuck Pharis Camera and Microphone Museum
I have been working on my camera and microphone museum for months. Here are some early photos. Sorry no tape machines as I just do not have the room for them. I still have more cameras to display but need to re-build some pan heads and restore some tripods and wheels. If anyone gets near South Eastern Tennessee email me and I will give you a private tour. The collection is not open to the public. Everything is in a room next to my home. I just installed a full video and internet security system with battery backup. What you see is about ¼ of my collection. The rest is in storage. The CCU and monitor are being restored for a working RCA TK-41. I still have a long way to go. Some of the cameras in my display are restored to working condition.
I believe I have the only Marconi MK II and MK III cameras in the USA. I am looking for a MK III Power Supply.
I am also looking for a RCA TK-15 CCU and Field Power Supply and Norelco PC-70 CCU boards. I only have a partial set.
