Murphy Television Range 1937-1947
This site only considers radio receivers from the Murphy company for the most part, however Murphy were also one of the first companies to develop a television receiver for the domestic market. The first, model A42V from 1937 was a massive set, and it seems likely that very few were sold, particularly as TV transmissions were only available in the London area (transmitted from Alexandra Palace). It is difficult to imagine Murphy made a profit from its pre-war TV sales at all, but then in 1937 it was not known that WW II would cause TV transmissions to be suspended for the duration of the war.
Show below for information are sketch's from a Murphy dealer's reference guide that cover the first 10 years of Television manufacture at Welwyn Garden City.
Full range available between 1937 and 1947.
