A Bit of History...

In the midst of all the moves, my aunt decided she needed to find a new home for the Victrola that belonged to my Grandfather's mother. It is a beautiful thing and I gladly offered it a home. Once I got it home, I put it all back together to see if it would still play. I remembered it working when I was a little girl, but had no idea what might have happened over time. I wound the crank and put on a record of bagpipes, placed the needle and turned on the turntable, and then there was music!! It was in perfect working order. Here are some photos of the beautiful old thing.

Awww! My family had one exactly like that when I was little. They produce a startling amount of volume, don't they?
