Two Turn Tables and No Microphone

French engineer Leon Gaumont's 1910 Chronophone system

Gaumont built this to synchronize south with film.

The operator alternated records on the two turntables.

Wish I could say that I have one on display at Guy in the Groove,

but for now I'm content to enjoy these photographs. 

Special thanks to Mark Licht for bringing this to my attention.
