I just bought a 100-year old wind-up Victrola gramophone. It plays old 78 rpm records and needs no electricity: just wind it up with a few turns on the crank, drop a 100 year-old record like ‘It’s a Long Way to Tipperary’ on the platter, and gently drop the heavy tone-arm (or ‘reproducer’ as it was called then) on to the disc. 610 more words
