Antique Edison Gramophone Records & Cylinders


While visiting my parents a few weekends ago, I was ecstatic to inherit this collection of antique Edison Gramophone Records and Cylinders that my dad had collected.  Aren't they divine?! 

 I love the aged cylinder boxes and their amazing labels!

I haven't looked at them all closely, but I have found some cylinders dated back as far as 1873!  That's 100 years before I was even born!


And the paper record covers have the most gorgeous antique graphics and advertisements.

I'm lucky that some of the cylinder boxes and record covers are empty so I can use them in some exciting projects!  My mind is racing with possibilities!  But I'd love to hear your suggestions! :)
