• Short Summary

    Francis Jehl, who worked with Edison, shows us the original phonograph machine!

  • Description

    Titles read: "A page from the past. Over half a century ago, Edison invented the phonograph. The great Inventor has left us, but Francis Jehl, who worked with him, demonstrates the original machine... a priceless relic in this age."

    United States of America.

    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!
