You could also get this one;
Although its a working repro!
You could even get this tv;
Just make sure its out of sight from the street
Can we have a TV if it looks like this...
and works like this?
If I want TV that big, I'll go to the movie house. We will have one, won't we?
I want TV that's only on 2 hours a night, from a station that will answer postcards or even put you on the air if you have talent.
Maybe next time,...

People think they are so rebellious and original, when really they are just banal, boring and dumb.
I do want a 1930s-looking hospital, but with 2007 equipment and surgical techniques, please. Thank you
Of course!Originally Posted by Fletch
I think that that would be a great job for one of our villagers with a passion for old movies.
A small village cinema, only one screen, black and white classics, all the villages coming over every weekend.
tv and people with talent?I want TV that's only on 2 hours a night, from a station that will answer postcards or even put you on the air if you have talent.
What a strange combination, what a great idea!
Im afraid that wont work though, vintage tvs are great but we would need our own 1930s tv station to get us 1930s broadcasts!
The only way to get one of those is to build it yourself!Originally Posted by Marc Chevalier
There wont be a hospital in our village, like in most modern villages.
If theres a accident we call 911 or 999.
I will run the movie house -- Super-Simplex projectors with Photophone soundheads and carbon-arc lamphouses, and 2000-foot film magazines with a changeover every 20 minutes. Movies the way they were meant to be seen!

I think the idea of a 1930s village is sterling, but I think it would only work in one of three ways. It can work in the Field-of-Dreams kind of way: If you build it they will come. Or it works if designed by a committee of people bound to find some way to make money on it . The third option is a very small, very dedicated group of people who feel they have a mission to create a like-vision.
I've often toyed with the idea of what it would be like to create a mock 1940s vacation village where people would pay to relive a specific week or month of that time. Unfortunately, I have neither the missionary zeal nor the Gatesque fortune to do it.
