Additional Details:
The first sound reproducing device was an Edison Phonograph, invented by Thomas A. Edison in 1877, at Menlo Park, N.J., where he then had his laboratory. In 1887 Mr. Edison took up his residence and his laboratory work at Orange, N.J., and there, under his personal direction, the Phonograph has been developed into the wonderful musical instrument it is, known and enjoyed in the homes of every nation.
