"This Pig'N Whistle ad from 1925 was created at Bissiri Studio by Adriano and Augusto Bissiri. Adriano was a titled artist from motion pictures, and his brother Augusto is credited as the inventor of television. In 1906, Augusto trasmitted a photograph image from one room to another, and in 1917, he successfully transmitted an image from London to New York. He patented his apparatus in Los Angeles in 1928".
