Various shots of Francis Jehl showing us the original phonograph machine, invented by Thomas Edison. He shows us how it works then speaks the first words Edison said into the machine - "Hello hello hello! Mary had a little lamb" etc. He plays the words back - it sounds quite high-pitched, but how amazing! He was there at the time!
