There were also some interesting vintage record players on display at the Perth Heritage Days event on the weekend. The one above is an early 20th century Gem phonogram. It plays cylindrical records like the one shown below.

The HMV portable gramophone below was produced from the 1930s to early 50s. It’s still a far cry from modern CD and MP3 players.
