Victorian iPod on Display at Tower Bridge?
Well – it’s more like a Victorian Walkman, but I still though it was cool. This pocket-sized device (manufactured in 1926) unfolds into a miniature phonograph. Amaze you friends, confound your enemies! It was on display on the upper deck of Tower Bridge as part of an exhibit of Victorian musical automata including some other early phonographs and phonograph recordings. The collection is presented with great gusto by a “Mr. Bagpipe” (a gentleman sporting a rather unlikely beard). Your last chance to see it is tomorrow, the 25th. Definitely worth the visit, especially (but not exclusively) for those with small children.
