Whew! I braved the uncooled T-G attic and finally scanned several weeks' worth of new old photos.
Here's a glance at state-of-the-art electronics circa winter 1976 at Kincaid Service Co. I think they were still in the little house-like building on Deery Street then.
Go here for a larger view.
From left are Ricky Davis, Randy Carroll, and Roger Vannatta, surrounded by TVs and stereo systems. It doesn't seem that long ago that the old furniture-like TVs were the norm as opposed to today's big-screens. And we once thought those pictured were large screens...
To the right are stereo systems containing turntables. Remember record albums? And not a CD player in sight (they were still a few years away).
Further back, those are aftermarket car stereo components, which for the most part didn't come close to today's high-powered systems (never thought I'd have a 12-speaker factory system...). By 1976 cassettes were beginning to take the lead from eight-tracks.
Back in the late 1970s it seemed like Jensen systems with Jensen Triaxial speakers were the big modifications.
Today's entertainment devices are so advanced compared to the mid-1970s...but, you know, I think we who were there enjoyed them just as much as today's.
