The theme of this 'refreshed' front page is old age. It's a strange thought that if this old boy was seventy when the picture was taken, then he was born before Victoria ascended the throne.
What joy a gramophone brings!
I was just saying to Mum, Charlie, that lovely gramophone has given you a new lease on life! Charlie?...Charlie...er...
No, Sir, the music is just called 'hot', you can safely touch the gramophone while it's playing. Oh, I'm sorry; it's rolling towards you? That's a different problem.
Girls just wanna have fun!
Ladies know how to enjoy themselves, but is the one on the right receiving secret messages from the gramophone? (Nice balloons, by the way, Madam!).
I am still pretty much selling everything that I can get hold of before I can show it on these pages, but there is a handful of additions here. I need more stock to keep up with demand, so keep those offers coming, except...
...please don't offer me any cabinet gramophones unless they are either by HMV or in novelty cases (like a piano-shaped case) as I no longer have a market for them. I am sorry, but I may not reply to enquiries about such machines as I just don't have the time at present to turn them down individually.
If you are looking to buy or sell a genuine gramophone or phonograph then you have come to the right place! I have been collecting them since 1972 and trading for only a little less time; forty years of knowledge and experience. Over this period I have handled just about everything that the subject covers from humble portables to 'tinfoil' Edisons from the beginning of recorded sound history.
'Seniors' on the left, but Junior (Monarchs) in this
column; In this case (pun intended) It's a 'pre-dog'
Junior Monarch. The horn paint is original.
This time a later oak-cased-and-horned 'Junior' in a
nice 'fielded' case. You can read more about both of
these machines on the 'Gramophones for Sale page.
If you are becoming interested in the subject of early machines and records, you might like to join a club or society dedicated to their study. Groups exist all over the world, and links to a number of them may be found on a page here.
