TV Test Patterns

Mr. Fix-It's Complete Book on How to Make Your Own Electrical Repairs.  By Six Leading Authorities.  NY:  Greystone Press, 1953.
TV stations used to broadcast these at the end of their programming day, so that TV owners could use them to adjust their picture quality.

That just reminded me of the old Cheech and Chong routine that starts off with them watching a boring movie about an Indian (the test pattern) LOL!

I too looked for the Indian, based on the Cheech and Chong routine. Sadly, a bit too politically incorrect for these times.
