Early Color Television

Westinghouse H22T155

The first rectangular color tubes were made in 1957 by CBS and Westinghouse. A very few receivers were made using them, including this model. Convergence never worked properly on these tubes, and they were withdrawn from the market rapidly. It was not until the mid 60s that successful rectangular tubes were made. These are the first pictures of a 22 inch rectangular set to become available since the set was made.
