         The life and times of Mark and Paula Persons
       Member of the
     Pavek Museum
Gilbert lake Association

Friday, December 8, 2023:
Mark and Paula headed to the Pavek Museum in St. Louis Park, a suburb of Minneapolis, MN.

The museum is mostly about broadcasting. Here, Paula is looking at the Minnesota Broadcasters' Hall of Fame.

One display from the 1950's teaches people how to use a rotary dial on a telephone of the day.
The equipment on the right is a weather radar, used by WCCO-TV starting in 1958.

Nipper the dog is seen here listening to his master's voice on a radio.

Lots of interesting displays including these microphones.

Early television sets.

Then there was this video tape recorder.

Mark & Paula with Chapter 17 of the Society of Broadcast Engineers. They met this day for their annual holiday party.

This was just the beginning of a car trip for Mark and Paula totaling 3034-miles with 62 hours of driving time, ending December 23rd.

Quote of the day:    It is holiday time.  Mark < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
