Today I was finally able to get a few recently acquired phonograph dealer’s trade signs and and dealer’s banner hung for display. It looks like I need another dealer’s Francis Barraud ‘His Master’s Voice’ picture to bring back some symmetry here.

Great signs but let's see some pictures of the machines inside the cases. :o :shock:

The cases contain all kinds of interesting machines. It's like a candy counter for phonoholics...

Mike needs to pan around the room, as this is just a small section of his mechanical music room. Just to the right is the Biophone and behind is an outstanding collection of orchestrions, etc.

Amazing collection...

Beautiful collection and display. It's obvious that you have spent a lot of time putting this together.

The place looks fantastic. I feel like I should be paying admission, as in museum.
