The Gramophone

With our record player out of commission, lately I have been using the gramophone. The records feel so funny – heavier and more plastic somehow.. The gramophone is a table that opens up underneath (that’s also the volume control). My parents bought it at a flea market in the seventies, but I only remember it as the table in various hallways  – well, a table with a handle on the side! Now it lives right in our living room.  I love looking through the paper sleeves and the little tins of needles that came with it. I didn’t realize how many different brands there were for them. You can see a flickr set of a collection here.
