Old Record Players
I had always believed that there was a difference between two types of pre-electric record players. I thought there was a victrola, which has an internal speaker sort of like a drum or modern speaker, and a phonograph which had the big external bullhorn speaker.
However, as I look through Wikipedia, I’m not finding that this is a valid distinction. Grrr.
I am pleased to see, and report, that Carbon Paper continues to be available for sale at Office Depot. And now, it’s cool!
Lastly, for those of us who attented schools prior to 1990, we remember that photocpies were expensive and rare. Most coying of paper for worksheets and tests used to be done by mimeograph machines.
