Novel Uses of the Talking Machine



Doug Boilesen, 2024

This page documents a few of the uses that were reported in the press in the phonograph's early years. It's a scrapbook and work in progress sourced from trade and popular culture magazines and newspapers.

Currently, it's classified as a Work In Progress and some place to put a clipping when it pops-up in my readings.
