Here's a picture from April 1938 taken at Far Rockaway High School in New York State. It was the campus presentation of "Whistling in the Dark." Broadcast Pioneers member Gene Crane, an icon of Philadelphia television is in the center of the photo and is seen on the wooden steps of the set. Gene is in our Hall of Fame and was selected as "Person of the Year" in 2003 by the Broadcast Pioneers of Philadelphia.
