This is a 1929 WESTERN TELEVISION Corp. mechanical "Scanning Disk" TV.
One of the first factory built mechanical televisions. To view the crude
pictures on this machine required a radio receiver and an
additional amplifier to boost the signals to a high enough level
to excite the large neon "image
tube" behind the viewing lens. If you wanted sound, that required
another radio to tune in the sound channel. This particular set had a
resolution of 45 lines (15 lines triple interlaced).
