Original Zonophone Record Poster C 1910

Post by Gmemg » Mon Dec 11, 2017 8:16 pm

This poster came from Ebay some years ago it was sold by a Vendor who, i think, was called "red Ruby" he had found many, many early Phonograph & Gramophone adverts in the roof of a shop - all dated to C 1908 - 1910 - i bought a Glass sign for Pathe records and this poster - with a couple of other ones all imperfect and from them i was able to make two more or less complete

the Posters are printed on Glazed paper and had been rolled up for nearly 100 years and thus had folded and cracked - some parts including the top edges where brass rails originally held strings were missing in order to stop further deterioration i had to glue this one to a piece of Plywood - the top edge (i have folded a loose edge back) is actually a colour photocopy i put there to complete in image

I presume others must exist with other records but have never seen any

Money. Greed. Naivety. Falsehoods. Exploitation. Welcome to the wonderful world of gramophones!
