Western Television Corporation TV equipment purchased by Douglas Perham from T. Van Norman in October 1957. The letter from Van Norman accompanying the photos describes the equipment: "The 2 sync motors with their aluminum discs with pin holes, and their metal frames are in good condition, except the paint is off in places. They each have a large Bausch & Lomb lens. One of the frames (I don't know whether the transmitter or receiver) has a turret that can be turned. There is a hole in the metal case (the size of the lens) in front of the lens in the turret in line with the pin holes in the aluminum disc, for viewing or scanning. The lens are in good shape. The thing leaning against the wall is an adjustable mirror, mirror is against the wall. The metal thing on the right in the picture, large metal affair is in good shape, except it has a little rust on it in places, which could be easily cleaned up. There is a four inch lens in good condition in the foregound of the picture. One side of the container is hinged."
