Phono-Sightings

Phonographs in non-phonograph specific displays

 

This gallery features Phono-Sightings where a phonograph is displayed as part of another display (e.g., in a period room such as a 1930's living room). Phono-Sightings, therefore, are random and serendipitous in how a phonograph and other connections end up in this gallery.

Both the Bailey Cabin and the Neimoth Cabin were originally located in Bill's Ranch, south of Frisco. Used as a family summer home this cabin features a river-rock fireplace and has many of the original furnishings.






 

Basel Toy World Museum

 

The Basel Toy World Museum consists of the "world's largest collection of old teddy bears" and a variety of historical dolls, shops, dollhouses, carousels and contemporary miniatures. I visited this museum in 2011 and only saw one phonograph but as a Friend of the Phonograph it was a delightful one-off sighting.
