Edison Phonograph

From Today's History, November 20, 1891:

"L.H. Barber has bought a large Edison phonograph of 40 cylinders. Fourteen persons can listen to its sounds at one time, and it can be fitted with a cone and entertainment given to a large audience. The phonograph will be open to the inspection of the public at some suitable place on Main
street next week."
