Edison's pocket phonograph

Edison's pocket Phonograph

It was a historic moment when Thomas Alva Edison succeeded in mechanically recording and reproducing a human voice in 1877. This pocket phonograph also goes back to one of his patents.
A narrow strip, into which fine grooves are stamped, is connected to a sound box (this can also be a balloon) and the thumbnail is used to play back the short messages. You can hear "Happy Birthday", "Merry Christmas", "Good Morning" and "Congratulations".
