This phonograph was purchased from W.G.F. Scythes & Co. Limited by the Ada Scott family. A varnished wooden box contains the workings to play cylinder records and features a hinged lid and side crank.
It was donated to the museum by the family in 2000.
The phonograph was invented by Thomas Edison in 1877. His first recording was of himself, reciting “Mary had a Little Lamb”.
