Thanks for all these ads, they're very interesting.
In another vein, these people in the Pole with a gramophone... Mmmmmm.... It reminds me of the famous gramophone of Captain Scott... But I always think that the mainsprings must be in a very delicate situation with that enormous cold... It's prone to break!

February 27, 1897: Someone’s rant about the Grapophone. 😂

Looks like SOMEBODY is none too thrilled about getting a recorded message on the phone so they decide to give the Graphophone a gay nineties trash talkin!
