Edison Tins

Thomas Edison invented the phonograph in 1877.  During the 1880's Alexander Graham Bell made several improvements and introduced the gramophone as we know it today.  As the transition began from cylinder records to discs, "talking machines" was a generic term that covered a range of players being manufactured by companies such as the Victor Talking Machine Company.  The needle tins shown here are Japanese where Edison was a household name.
