The Bauhaus aesthetic runs deep. I love that stuff, it is so clean and powerful.

Clean and powerful like a Trabi - oh those clever and industrious East Germans, also known as commie nazis - they were the best.

A Cuban Caribe TV. We had these until I came in '95:


Before 1984, we had this:


A Rubyn 205 Made in the USSR...and incompatible with Cuba's power grid patterns. It required an external voltage regulator generally home made by someone in the neighborghood.

Great looking stuff (most of it). Love that baby buggy!

I can't look at that picture of the TV without my eyes going weird. The bottom of the set seems to drop, and the box becomes a trapezoid.

Is it just me or does the set really move?

Back in '73, I was working for Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Geological Observatory on its research vessel R/V Vema. As a part of Pres. Nixon's detente with the Russians, we went to Murmansk. While I was there, we went to the largest department store in the city. When we got to the TV "department", there was one "portable" type TV sitting on top of one floor or console model. I had grown up in New York City and going to the TV department in any of the large department stores meant seeing a whole wall, floor to ceiling, of TVs. I kind of concluded to myself at that point that is the Commies could do any more than this in regard to TVs, I sure don't want to be a Commie.
