That header picture

In response to people who have asked…my header picture is a collection of gramophone horns at the fantastic  Johnson Victrola Museum at 375 S. New St, Dover, Delaware, 19904.

I visited the musuem in 2009 and could not have been made more welcome by the knowledgeable and enthusiastic volunteers. Theirs is a fascinating collection of phonographs and gramophones chronicling the development of the sound-recording industry, in particular the contribution and achievements of E.R. (Eldridge Reeves) Johnson founder of the Victor Talking Machine Co.
