BZH Hornless Talking Machine, built by Columbia. I have one that's similar.

Re: Stumbled onto an External Horn Disc Graphophone and Need Advice

Re: Edison Standard A Machines Without Shavers?

The ICS tag is different on the front of mine. It was not called the International Correspondence School. Initially, I wasn't aware of there being anything labelled "International Textbook Company" (or ITC). I had seen a few examples of "International Correspondence School" (or ...

(Edison Board) Compatibility of Triumph Mandrels?

A visitor on the Edison Proboards site wrote about a recently acquired Model E Triumph in need of a mandrel, and asked whether other mandrels were compatible.

Re: PAPER HORN "BALMAIN"

Also, for how long were the Berliner phonographs and the Berliner records produced? In 1900, when a court decision forced Berliner to stop doing bu...
