Here is an advertisement by Emerson Radio and Television from the November 6, 1948, edition of the The Saturday Evening Post. By 1948, America and the free world was well into the conversion of wartime production back into commercial and consumer products. After many long years of allocating factory space, personnel, and resources to beating back the forces of Communism, Marxism, Socialism, and other evil forms of 'isms," the good times were returning. FM radio broadcasting stations were increasing rapidly in number, providing static-free listening even in areas of weak reception. Television was still a relatively new phenomenon for most households. The tabletop Model 571 "Image Perfection" television carried a price of $299.50 in 1948, which is the equivalent of a whopping $3,186* in 2018!!! No wonder not many home had TV sets back then.
