I'm not even sure it depicts real machines or just stylized?
(At least the center horn seems to be levitating...

Rather stylized: bottom appears to be a Pathé, with a "Système Vérité"; the middle is obviously a Gramophone Co. product (although the horn cradle is obviously missing). As for the top machine, I'm not sure.

soundgen: Yes, better upright! Thank you for fixing. (Oddly, they WERE upright on the device I used to post them!?) The print is about 4' tall x 3' wide (upright! :P )

Anyone know what is is? It's not advertising, the machines are just "so close but no cigar."

Was it art? I find the range of machines and the stray accoutrements very visually appealing. I like soaking it in and wondering what all the things are... and if they are even real.

Could it be I'm more sophisticated than I thought? :lol:
