Is This A Color Roundie

I recently did an internet search for old school houses, and i found a neat residential school house conversion in northern Wisconsin. In one of the rooms is an old TV set that looks to be 1950's color roundie. See it for yourself. Could i be right?,0,9

Took me a while to spot it
I'm not sure if it's B&W or a color roundie. Certainly mid 50s.

That angle is just a little tough-I'm leaning towards bw. I do think it is RCA, has that look. I like that refrigerator-it was a hoss in its day.

I'm 99.0624% sure it's a '56-ish RCA B&W console with the slimline tube, and controls on the side.

It is not a roundie (case in point, the bottom of the picture is bowed outward - in a roundie, the top and bottom lines are usually straight).

Ergo, I agree with those who believe it is a mid to late 1950's RCA BW.
