Victrola Portable Phonograph Poster
The Victrola Portable Phonograph 'The Best Portable Gramaphone at the Least Expensive Price'Victrola Phonographs made by the Victor Talking Machine Company from 1906 through 1929 were acoustic phonographs with the sound-reproducing horn 'built-in' (internal) to the cabinet. While the earliest phonographs used large external horns to amplify the sound, it was the invention of the internal horn Victrola in 1906 that literally launched the phonograph into millions of homes. No longer was the phonograph a strange machine with a huge horn that stood out so awkwardly in a room; the new Victrola looked like a piece of furniture that fit perfectly in the parlor.?'Victrola' is a brand name, and not a generic term for all old wind-up phonographs.?
