I have a couple hundred pre 1930's recordings and several phonographs.

So you couldn't sit down anyway. You have to change the record every 3 minutes. :)

A complete picture, I love the Samavar, I have one for making spiced tea but the kero lamp I do not have - great! Yep, there is something about a coal point of heat device. I think I have some Django Rheinhart/Stefan Grapelli 78s somewhere and a few gallons of winter warmer XXX - party anyone?

:) Breaking news....

William keeps his mp3 recordings of heavy metal bands blasting out on his computer just of of sight. The phonograph does not even work and the base burner has been converted to a wine cooler long ago. :) :) :)

:lol: OK now thats funny :lol:
In all seriousness though I think you folks down in mountains of PA have a very valuable thing going on... peace, quite and a bygone way of life. The more I watch these Amish people shows and see all those quaint lil' shops, people fairly self sufficient and the more I hear on the forum from PA folks... the more jealous I get :doh: Kinda reminds of Vermont somehow...

Thanks for putting those up. I have a few original issue records of the Hot Fives in my repertoire. The originals are priceless. I found mine years ago at a flea market. Now they go for in E+condition well over a hundred bucks apiece. These valuable records get played when company comes over so they can hear what they sounded like when first heard. I have my share of Caruso records as well.

When my brothers and I were little kids, my parents had a Victrola??? in a cabinet, and a collection of 78 RPM records. You would wind it up with a crank and set the needle on and when it skipped you would press down a little on the tonearm to keep it in the groove. Eventually it lost its speed regulator and would run anywhere from 20 to 300 RPM depending how tight you wound it up. If the needle was missing we sharpened a pencil and played the records that way. I guess it was all a learning experience for us kids, but I shudder now at what barbarians we were, and the damage we caused. :sick:
