Looking back at the late 1800s, it's impossible to ignore the influence that Edison's phonograph had on popular culture. One of the ways this early recording device was marketed was through colorful advertising posters that highlighted its many advantages, both as a recorder and player. These posters often showed the apparatus surrounded by people and/or animals listening to the phonograph.
Looking at these vintage posters today, it's hard not to feel a sense of nostalgia for a time when posters were the most used form of marketing, and moreover, when recorded sound was still something new and magical. The Edison phonograph may seem peculiar compared to today's high-tech audio equipment, but it paved the way for everything that came after it, and it remains an important milestone in music history.
The poster here in 'worn' faded colors shows a home model of the Edison Phonograph, with a kneeling woman holding a dove, who is watching/listening.
