Wow~ That's an antique already~ Pretty hard to find one now days. Even if found, they're expensive :(
The sounds of it can't be compared to modern audio sets.

So glad you're able to see the pigeon today :)

Hi Shubha, Nice photo again. Reminds me of old Hindi movies.

I want to pass on the award 'You Make My Day' to you. Right click on the pic in my side bar and save it.

That's a nice Victrola. Those were the days. I wish appliances were still as pretty.

Thanks all .

I came across this one while on one of my walks .
And Sandy is right ..it seems technical perfection has had to do away with aesthetics !

Lovely antique! Happy WW :)

My brother has one that is "portable" - you can take it apart and pack it into a neat little box. You have to crank it to make it go. The box has the little Victrola dog etched on it.

Fantastic picture. In Argentina, we called those 'gramofones' but also -and more commonly- 'fonolas'.

Thanks for visiting my WW post. Have a great day!

Very nice shape, this one! We sure did miss our chance to get a nice Emerson one snowy day at auction. People stayed away because of the weather.

Thanks for the visit, Happy WW/WT!
