Vintage shell oil "wonderful world of golf" promo~pro player's swing photo's~nbc
I'm selling 1- original glass slide promoting the television broadcast of "The Wonderful World Of Golf". Shell's Wonderful World of Golf was a televised series of golf matches which began in the 1960s. The program was sponsored by Shell Oil. It was a part of the tradition of "challenge matches" between pairs of professional golfers, which were the earliest form of professional golf competition, but have now been almost entirely replaced by large field tournaments. On a few occasions, three players competed. No matches were staged between 1970 and 1994, when the show was restarted by Jack Nicklaus Productions and hosted by Gary Player. This slide was used in a Filmchain at the NBC studio in Washington. The Filmchain was a machine that would capture the image, turn it into an electronic signal, then converted back into a picture on your television set. This is a 35mm transparency (2" x 2" slide) encased between two pieces of glass and taped at the edges to hold it together. They were used to promote the day and time of an upcoming show. This is an original slide that was used on the air. It is not a reproduction.These slides were brought home by my father as his personal souvenirs. Good Luck! NOTE: If you buy more than one slide from my auctions, I won't charge shipping for the others. Just shoot me an email requesting an invoice for all purchases. Be sure to check out my other original photo's and vintage television collectibles I'm currently selling as well. My father worked at NBC (WRC in Washington, D.C.) from 1947-1978. He started out as a Cameraman and in a few short years was promoted to Technical Director. He was one of the true television pioneers of his time. He was in charge of assigning the entire engineering crew and then switching the show in the control room. He was also an excellent photographer and won many awards for his photographs at the Washington Camera Club. He would always bring his Nikon and Hasselblad camera's to work with him to take behind the scenes pictures of shows, interviews, and breaking news events. He passed away in 2004 and I have now decided to sell some of his collections. Keep watch for my future auctions where I have many rare photos that have never been seen by the public.
