Dave Garroway hosting the "Today" show on Monday, December 1st 1952.
I snapped this photo through the window of the RCA Exhibition Hall in Rockefeller
Center during the course of my first visit to Manhattan.
I was eleven at the time. The "Today" show (which first aired on January
14th, 1952) was less than a year old.
Though most remember Dave Garroway as the first host of the "Today"
show, his network television career began in 1949 his Chicago-based "Garroway
at Large" helped define the video medium.
