History museum remembers ‘high tech’ of the past


Over the past decade, we have marveled at the changes in the technology of music. iPods, file-sharing, music in everyone’s phone, speakers that fit into your pant’s pocket, the list goes on and on. While these changes have been amazing, they were “next versions” of existing models in many cases. Think back to the “before and after” of any recorded sound at all. Think of the change to the household with the introduction of music… recorded sound. This beautifully rendered example of an early household phonograph is a prominent member of your history collection. Look for it in your new Rockford Area Museum.
