In March of this year, I wandered into an antiques mall (the Treasure Chest), met Fred, and bought several items including this Victrola.
I haven't taken my victrola into the office, I keep it at home. Partially because while it is old and genuine, I'm not entirely sure that it counts as something used in education.
I think Victrolas were entirely for home entertainment and were in people's parlors, not in schools.
Anybody know what the ones with the external speakers are called? I think they are record players but I'm not so sure....
The machine came with one particularly beat-up old 78 rpm records. In fact, it had a cigarette burn on it so you could play the first third. But it was a great song, it was the army fight song.
Over hill, over dale...Or is it ...
Over Here, Over there, we will hit, the dusty trail, and those cassions, go rolling along.
