Window to the Future


Product Description

“Window to the Future” is a nostalgic look at TV – and an ideal tool for prompting memories, especially for elderly and people living with dementia.

Ideal for the Activity Coordinators bookshelf to share with residents – or Home Care Services when visiting clients.

When television sets were still a luxurious novelty, manufacturers had to sell the new technological wonders by emphasizing their most glamorous, comforting, and appealing features.

From fanciful visions in early radio magazines to the lifestyle ads in the ‘heyday’, more than 150 print advertisements, magazine covers, and catalog images show the evolution of television – Celebrities who would come to dominate the medium, dapper men and elegant women hosting cocktail hour in front of their new black-and-white TV.

Makes an idea gift too.
