G.E.M.M. Show, Spring 1998

On Sunday, March 29th, the Auditorium of Saint Francis Prep School in Queens, NY was filled with hundreds of phonograph enthusiasts attending the Greate Eastern Mechanical Music Show

With over 70 early buyers, the room was filled with buyers pretty early.

Tables were filled with dozens of phonographs and music boxes, thousands of records (both disc and cylinder), and a plethora of accessories, catalogs, books and other ephemera.

You want horns? We got horns! Every shape and size for just about every machine could be found here.

As a matter of fact, all kinds of parts and accessories could be found, from motor and cabinet parts, to tonearms and reproducers.

Unfortunately in need of a lot of TLC, this lamp cleverly conceals a disc phonograph in its base.
