Catalogue Entry

A record player, or gramophone, was invented in the 1880s. Record players have been used within the last decades of the early 20th century. It has built-in speakers for playing vinyl records with no other equipment. This particular player needs to be wound up in order to play.

These old Cantonese opera records date back to the 1930s, and most of them were made in West Germany.
