1939 or later
Three television cameras, marked "NBC" and "WNBT," with bank of lights, photographed from a low angle. The print is marked "1939" in ink in bottom right margin, presumably by Laport, but this may be erroneous because the cameras shown seem to be later. According to information supplied on 23 Jan. 2009 by the Rev. B. Woods Mattingley, a television cameraman beginning from 1956 on, the cameras date from either the late 1940s or early 1950s.
