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.” #antiquephonographsociety #phonograph #gramophone #antique 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
