Mechanical Music Extravaganza, Spring 2000

The Mechanical Music Extravaganza show was held on Sunday, May 21st, at the Wayne PAL hall, located near Newark (and just a short trip to the Edison Historical Site in West Orange).

The doors opened to the early buyers at 8am. There were many dealers in attendance, but it took about an hour or so for them to get unpacked.

Since this show, although gaining ground on the more established venues, still had a comfortably light enough attendance to allow for some good bargains. Here we see a Standard AU, with a rare Edison lateral behind.

One of my favorite phonographs is this Keenophone, an odd disc phonograph with the horn built into the lid.
