Back in 1954 we got our first Tv! My Father brought a used one for $15.00 and set it up for watching that night, my Sister was about 14 years old at the time, told me a funny story about that night, she was so excited about having a TV and watching that night that she went around Mom Bruno’s’ candy store and brought candy and other snacks for that special night.
So later on when we all gathered in the living room, she layed down on the couch, my Uncle and Aunt who lived upstairs in the building, came down to watch TV and sat right down on my Sister because the lights were low to view the TV better!
She doesn’t remember what was on might have beeen the Ed Sullivan show, but she’s not sure. I myself don’t recall the night but she has a great memory of our first TV!
