Who remembers television coming to their home?

In June 1949, The Pantagraph reported on the arrival of television to several area communities. This photo comes from the Museum’s collection of Pantagraph negatives and is labeled, “Television comes to Danvers.” Unfortunately, we could not locate this photo in the newspaper or come across any reference to “television coming to Danvers,” so it’s likely this story never made it to print.

Anyway, that’s an RCA Victor television. Does anyone know who this is and where he’s at in Danvers? If so, let us know.
