It was on September 7, 1927, that 21-year-old Philo Farnsworth transmitted the first all-electronic television image. Farnsworth worked out of his "Green Street Lab" in San Francisco, a site designated as a California Registered Historic Landmark.
Farnsworth patented his designs and started a revolution that is still with us today.
