For those of you who are dogmatic about keeping the details of your house consistent with its architectural style, diving deep into the web to find out what kind of kitchen cabinet knobs you’d find in a Queen Anne or what door hinges are appropriate for your Edwardian, have I got good news for you!

No longer do you have to shun having an HDTV in your house since your home was built before 2005.

Check out the caption!  It turns out that HDTV was actually first shown in 1936!

A fabulous trove of old pictures from the estate of Dr. Vladimir Kosma Zworykin (one of the lead inventors of the television and television camera at RCA labs in the early 1930’s) was just made available online, including some of the earliest broadcast images from 1929.
