Edison Phonograph

Here are some samples of the Edison phonograph at the Imperial Calcasieu Museum playing cylinders from my personal collection at the museum. One cylinder is broken, but I recorded the playable portion and one clip was cut short because of the camera stopping mysteriously.

"Every Mother's Son There Sang the Wearing Of the Green" sung by Edwin S. Porter, Columbia or Indestructible cylinder #846

"Uncle Josh In Society" a comic spoken word piece recorded by Charles Stuart, Edison #10058

"yodle Sweet Rose" Edison cylinder #8438

There will be more of these to come soon.
