The 1989 Phonograph Birthday

112th Birthday

 

1989 Friends of the Phonograph Birthday Party

 

The Friends of the Phonograph's 112th Birthday was celebrated in our Oakland-Emeryville home on December 2, 1989.

This birthday was special because my parents Axel and Betty were attending from Lincoln, NE.
