Be Sure It Is a Victrola -- April 3, 2014

In 1906, the Victor Talking Machine Company introduced a revolutionary phonograph with an internal amplifying horn.  They called it the Victrola.  Victrola almost became a synonym for phonograph.  Many of my older relatives called any phonograph a Victrola, just as they called a refrigerator a Frigidaire.
