What's the date of your flier? 1878 or 1879? That's a great find.
Where did you find the Cookhill School House ticket? I ended up with one too. Does yours appear to be a reproduction or original? Mine is so clean I have to assume it's a repro. Do you have any idea where the Cookhill School House is?
I remembered something today that I've had piled up with a bunch of old advertisements. I thought it might fit into this topic. All I have is this single page, I don't know what year it is from. On the reverse it states it is from Popular Mechanics with a different article. Has anyone ever heard of this before?
Colo - is there a date on that 8' phonograph? It's obviously based upon the Auxeto-Gramophone principles. There had been a discussion on the old board about which phono was the first truly amplified. It comes down to the Auxeto-Gramophone and Columbia's Higham reproducer. If I remember correctly the BC was offered in 1904 or 1905 while the Auxetophone (Victor) was offered first in 1906. The general consensus is the Higham was the first amplified signal.
There is evidence that the Auxeto-Gramophone was demonstrated as early as 1898 in Paris. It just wasn't commercially offered to the public until 1906.
I would be very curious to know if this machine was from a time period prior to the sale of the Columbia BC.
There wasn't a date on this page. Since there was a different article on the reverse side with current events of the day, I was able to google some of the information and determine that it was solidly written in 1916.

I picked this up a few weeks ago along with an Edison Home. It kind of made the trip worth while although it is in poor condition. I had a little bit of good phonograph karma coming my way since the Triumph I bought on Ebay didn't make it in one piece. I'm guessing it's from the late 1890's, European. Any thoughts? The top of the poster says Polyphon.
thevictrolashop: I probably messed up my post on an odd horn machine called a Dulcetto with a tiny oak grained metal "Nifty Nirona" styled horn (unmarked) slotted crank, with an "it fits" Columbia add on reproducer. Nice guilded rear bracket as well. Any info appreciated.

willygram: I've had 3 talking machines for 20+ years but recently got all three working. I made a walnut cygnet horn in my garage for my fireside that just needs a few finishing touches but works and looks great. Pics if anyone would like. Fun chat/reading here!

delmont61: I acquired a Victrola VV215 and restored if for my daughter as a present. The motor worked fine,but seemed a stiff to wind. Took out the springs, cleaned them, and re-greased with Molly and a little gear oil. Still works fine, but it's still stiff.

rainycitygirl: I looked into a box I moved here almost 9 years ago and found (can't remember where I got it) something that looks similar in style as a handheld hole punch except at the "punch area".I believe it was called a wooden needle trimmer 4 talking machine.
