1950   Here is a high quality photo of a family posing around a PM in Taliba, Batangas, Philippines, 1950. The photo was taken by Byrd Brunemeier, who was an excellent photographer who went to great lengths to pose photos like this one. The photo was reproduced in the January 1957 Broadcaster where it explains that "six years ago, one of the first PMs was tested and placed in this home. [The] Lasala family and friends listen to the hymn 'Pass Me Not O Gentle Savior' as it comes over one of the first PMs from Manila." The original we scanned here is 4x5 inches in size. See #1539 for a color slide of the scene.
