Thought for the day

"In whatever arena of life one may meet the challenge of Courage, whatever may be the sacrifices he faces if he follows his conscience – the loss of his friends, his fortune, his contentment, even the esteem of his fellow men – each man must decide for himself the course he will follow. The stories of past courage can define that ingredient – they can teach, they can offer hope, they can provide inspiration. But they cannot supply courage itself. For this each man must look into his own soul." -- Profiles in Courage

NEED SOME HELP!

Television was introduced to Americans in 1939 and gained a foothold after World War II. In the 1950s, a boom in TV set sales and programming made TV America a preferred source of entertainment.

 

In 1950, only 20 percent of American homes had a TV set. Ten years later, nearly 90 percent of homes had a TV—and some even had color TVs.

 

To meet this growing demand, the number of TV stations, channels and programs increased. The 1950s was truly the golden age of television.

 

 

To attract buyers, manufacturers and advertising agencies created many interesting advertisements that tried to persuade people to buy TV sets. Some of these great TV commercials are collected in this article.
