Very cool. I too have always wanted one. I did buy an old phonograph so I could play 78 rpm records. Do gramophones play 78s?
that Third Man thing was supposedly a 78. The only thing that makes me hesitate is the availability of suitable records and new needles.
I doubt needles and records would be hard to find. Have you checked ebay? Then again you are in Rome...
The Victorians even made their utilitarian objects beautiful. I have a photo of a Gothic steam engine.Steampunk? No, Steam Gentleman.
Mark:Exactly. That's what we've lost today, the idea that everything we make should be beautiful to the extent that it's practical. Stupid Bauhaus.
It's a copy. A fake gramaphoneA wicked, nasty copy. Taint real!
