Back in a bygone era, before there was an endless stream of entertainment, television stations actually ended their programming in the evening. Introduced in 1939, The Indian Head Test Pattern was used in the age of black and white television broadcasting.The pattern followed the formal television station sign off after the U.S. national anthem. Interestingly, the graphics and patterns of the chart actually served a purpose of making adjustments to the picture. The Indian Head became obsolete in the 1960's with the introduction of color television and a test card with color bars was used instead. Today, we have the luxury of television stations broadcasting continuously with infomercials, late night shows, and syndicated reruns.
