Museum of Plastic: The TV Tower

It’s not so much that the TV Tower existed – once upon a time, I’m sure it was a nicely appropriate representation of how football was televised – it’s that they kept on selling it, and putting it in new packaging, right up to the early 1990s. It does, however, still look really nice placed at the corner of a pitch:

(yes, that one’s mine)

And kudos to the enterprising soul who used bits of it, along with pieces of the scoreboard, to make a more up-to-date Sky Sports¬†gantry to flog on eBay…
