This is my display showing the Edison model A Fireside phonogragh that my grandparents purchased as a gift to each other for their wedding. They were married March 8, 1916. My Dad told me of the winter nights when his parents would sit and listen to this. Many years on a cold winter day my Dad would get this phonogragh down from his attic and get it running so that "I could see how it worked", but I now know he was loving it just as much as I was.

    very nice. This model hit the market circa 1905.

    Very good,I have one on my shelf ( it is kind of small from what I have seen) the horn is missing,so do you think it will stay missing? I haven't seen extras.
