Last year I found a nice Type G Perfected Graphophone with a wooden mandrel in Tennessee... it is now in Mike Lund's collection. It came with a large number of playbills/broadsides and admission tickets along with a custom box of brown wax cylinders and a hand written playlist which all indicate that it was used for concerts or phonograph presentation events.

The question I have is whether anyone knows of the "Standard Graphophone Company", maybe from Ohio, whose proprietors were listed as Lefforge and Barber printed on the playbills... It would be interesting to discover the provenance of this machine by determining who gave the concerts...
