Woman with Edison’s Home Model A wax cylinder phonograph, ca. 1900.

Edison Phonograph Ad by the Nat'l Phonograph Company. In the opinion of Neil Lerner, a collector, the phonograph is one of Edison’s “Home” units. The model, he says, can be identified by the clips on the side. These clips were used to attach the lid. Behind the woman’s elbow is a hole in the case to insert the crank to wind up the phonograph. A dozen seconds of cranking, and then you could sit back and listen to a 2-minute song, a speech, or a story."
