Here is my new Edison Amberola 50 phonograph.
In 1908 Edison introduced his new cylinder format, first called "Amberol Record" what became later the famous „Blue Amberol“. With his new phonographs the "Amberola-Series" Edison eliminated definitively the outside horn. The "Amberola-Phonographs", produced first in 1911, were available in a wide range of different models. The last "Edison Amberola Phonograph" leaves the manufactory at West Orange in October 1929.
The "Amberola 50" was first produced in 1915. It is a table model finished in fine mahogany. The double spring motor is playing up to five cylinders before re-winding. The "Amberola 50" is rather small, but nevertheless one of the finest phonographs, it sounds loud and clear.
Also pictured are a few of the "records" that play on the phonograph.
