Was Television Invented in Bedford Park?

In 1908 John Wellesly Lynn, a resident of Fielding Road, registered a patent he believed would make his fortune - the 'LynnoScope' . Was this the origin of modern TV…right here in Bedford Park?

Lynn described his invention as “..an instrument which will enable you to see around the world with images sent through the air with the aid of electricity. By using it in London it will be possible to present an actual reflection of the Derby as it is being run”.

He went on “…I do not mean a living cinematograph picture, but an actual reflection of the event as it is in progress”.
