41/366 More Vintage Stuff

At the Ladybug Rock'n'Roll Weekend, the '50s rock and R&B festival that I attended a week ago, a collector of old electronics had put his collection of turntables, radios, amplifiers, and such, on display. At the breakfast, he acted as a DJ, playing music from old 78 rpm records on this equipment. So, a DJ's table in the late fifties may have looked like this:

  1. OH!! That's pretty cool. :D Did they have a sock hop or have old records playing?

      He also had a record player that I'm sure was just like the one we had when I was a kid.

    Neat picture, rowan.
