What are Phonographia?

Phonographia are connections with the Phonograph. (1)

With the completion of the Phonograph at Edison's Menlo Park Laboratory on December 6, 1877 sound for the first time was captured and played back. Edouard-Léon Scott de Martinville had captured sound in 1857 but Scott never intended to make a machine that talked.

Edison's Phonograph or "Talking Phonograph," therefore, began the social, cultural and literal revolution of recorded sound. (2)

To see examples of phonograph connections and its evolution from 1877 to present day visit Phonographia galleries PhonoArt, PhonoAds, Factolas, Friends of the Phonograph and PhonoMultimedia.
