My latest acquisition; an adapter for use on Edison Disc phonographs, likely made in the late teens or mid 20s. This little gadget allows an Edison Disc owner to play the latest 78 Fox-trots.
Edison Discs were recorded using the hill and dale method, the sound "bumps" go up and down. 78s were recorded laterally, the sound is on the groove wall. Never played an Edison Disc using a needle, you will ruin the Disc. And playing a 78 using an Edison reproducer will ruin the stylus.
