Polyphon Playing “Annie Laurie”

This is the 1890 Polyphon Mechanical Music Machine. It is a fairly recent addition, and has become a fast favourite!

It is a rare coin operated version that would have been found in a commercial setting like a drug store, ect., ¬†for entertainment. The predecessor of the “JukeBox”

A large metal disc rotates as “combs” pluck the punched holes in the disc, reading and playing the tune!

Come hear it in Fenelon Falls at the Horseless Carriage Museum!
