A ceramic po

Contributed by max the lobster

My father Jack Amos used to work on early television development with John Logie Baird. At one point they were working in Crystal Palace and were still there in 1936 when it burnt down. This miniature po was one of the things my father brought out of the building but now with moulten glass attached to the side of it. It is amazing to think that in such a short time they would be at war and TV would come such a long way (for better or worse)!
