Manufactured by the Victor Talking Machine Company (Camden, N.J.) in 1916, the Victrola works well. On your next visit to Village Craftsmen, take a look at this vintage machine. You can even choose a record (we have dozens), place it on the turntable, rotate the crank, and lower the needle. Many of the records are a bit scratchy, but they will give you an idea of what your grandparents and great grandparents listened to more than a century ago.
