Stooky Bill
An October 3 1929 newspaper image of John Logie Baird with Stooky Bill, the dummy he used in his demonstrations, and TV equipment. The caption stated: "One more dream of science has been realised. Man's vision has spanned the Ocean, and transatlantic television has been demonstrated to be a reality. A man and a woman sat before an electric eye in a London laboratory last night, and a group of people in a darkened basement in the village of Hartsdale, New York, watched them turn their heads and move from side to side. The images were crude and broken, but they were images nevertheless."
