Early 1950s Television Ads: Zenith "Lazy Bones" Remote Control

Slideshow:  A History of TV Remote Controls

A remote control was unheard of in the Nelson household -- from December 1955, when my parents bought their first TV, until September 1968, when I left home for college.  As a freshman at UB, none of my 4 housemates nor I owned a TV.  It wasn't until 1983 when I purchased a television of my own, one equipped with a remote control.
