This vertical print shows a slick advertising image in the top half with a man and a woman watching an early model television set. The woman is smoking a cigarette. A text box is inserted asking three questions. The bottom half is less slick, simply a diagram and text, some of it in a typewriter font. Text above and below asks about how soon television sets will be widely available in homes and museums. The date 1944 is included in parentheses at the top of the image.
