Did you know, on Saturday November 3, 1900 The first automobile show in the United States opened at New York’s Madison Square Garden under the auspices of the Automobile Club of America.
...and Alexander Winton punched James Ward Packard in the snoot.
And on November 3,1911 Louis Chevrolet and William Durant founded the Chevrolet Motor Company.
Thank you, Dennis. Steve, were you there to witness this, or is that a rumor going around?
Who remembers Edward R. Murrow's "You Are There!"??
Marv, I remember Edward R. Murrow on black & white TV, as a chain smoker.
'History' isn't a required subject anymore in our schools. Should we realize something? Anything?
"Everything is as it was, but YOU ARE THERE!!"
I remember watching the episode on the Titanic.
And Howdy Doody, and Gabby Hayes, and Hopalong Cassidy, and test patterns. God I'm getting old.
Howdy Doody....heck it was Winky Dink, the first truely interactive intertainment !
In Tin Lizzie by Stern there is a picture of Bob Smith/Buffalo Bob driving a model T in New York City.
Warren, Harry Bennett told me.
The anchor on You Are There was Walter Cronkite.
WOW David you are old, you watched YOU ARE THERE on the Titanic!? They didn't have TVs on that ship did they
Yeah, that is what I wrote, isn't it??
One of the main flaws with all the Titanic movies is the lighted funnels. Wasn't done back then.
Steve, That's what I recall too, "Uncle Walt" was the moderator. (Not, not Disney, that was the other Uncle Walt.)
One of the great late 50's shows that I liked was YOU ASKED FOR IT.
Brought to you by Skippy Peanut butter. Host was Art Baker. The other sponsor was Chevrolet "valve in head" trucks.
I always liked "Industry On Parade", narrated by Lowell Thomas. Learned a lot from that show in the mid fifties. Dave
