Records and Cylinders
Records and Cylinders I guess today we wouuld call these devices mass data storage. Back when these devices were actually used for entertainment there wasn't any other source of music other than live. The Edison used cylindrical records, the roller organs used cob rollers, the later Edisons used the thick (1/4")and eventually record players went to 78 rpm regular thickness records. It is interesting to at least me that there are a couple of generations out there that have never seen "records". So may this be their introduction to these "data storage devices" of long ago. I also want to add that the Concertina operated on a 6" punched and folded paper device. I have some but have been unable to locate them. I hope to find them in the near future and will post them on the site. So much for household moves and the usual bunch of boxes left over with no where to go.
