WAX CYLINDER, 1920's

This is a two minute cylinder for use with the Edison Standard Phonograph (see Photo in loan box).
The earliest Phonographs were used for dictation and only later were the cylinders used to record music and singing.
They are made of wax and that makes them very fragile, but because they have been kept in the original boxes lots do still survive.
