Record Made by a Captive Nightingale - The Property of Herr Carl Reich

10” Shellac gramophone record, 78rpm

A 1910 recording by Herr Carl Reich this was the first published recording of birdsong.

The Decca Junior gramophone.

8" high, 10.75" deep, 9.5" wide.

 

This type of gramophone employs “Bowl-in-lid” amplification by which sound is reflected forward from the lid. Sometimes this design is called the “Trencher” because in World War One British Troops were supplied with gramophones based on this design for use in the Trenches.

 

The Decca Junior along with the Crescendo Junior Soundbox was introduced in 1923. The motor is Swiss made. Decca never made their own Motors or Soundboxes, the Crescendo Soundbox was also made in Switzerland.
