"On This Day in Phonographic History..."


November 2, 1895: Thomas H. Macdonald filed for a U.S. patent for a “Graphophone.”  This device was the Type N Graphophone, the first popularly-priced ($40.00) talking machine.  Appearing in September 1895, the Type N was the first practical talking machine to successfully challenge Edison’s Class M Phonograph.


October 13, 1896: Thomas H. Macdonald was granted U.S. patent (No.569,290) for “Graphophone.”
