TV Detector Van

What a fantastic photograph from the Chad ‘archive’.  Technology has certainly moved on since this was taken in 1963.

  • Excellent photograph, could that have been taken in the Goodacre Street area all those years ago? That looks very much like one of the Prefab houses in the background, there were many in the area back then. Are there any left? Cost of a 60’s TV licence, I won’t even hazard a guess!

  • Seeing this parked outside your house would surely have filled you with fear and shame – all the neighbours would have known you hadn’t paid your TV Licence.
