Wordless Wednesday: Vintage Stereo

I was in the thrift store, hoping to find a good elliptical and came across this little beauty.
We didn't buy it, but we sure did admire it. The turntable was made of metal! I've never seen a stereo quite like it.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday, my friend. ♥

  2. Now that is a really old record player. Did your son know what it was?

    1. I blurted it out right away, "Look at that old stereo!" but if I hadn't, no, he wouldn't have a clue. Way before his time. He's all about everything being digital. :)

  6. My husband has an old stereo in our attic that he uses every so often. That stereo reminds me of the old days of vinyl records.

    1. Yes, these things are all very true! I wish I'd have had the foresight to keep some of the things we've had in our house over the years!

    We still have a collection of vinyl records - but nothing so stylish to play them on.

    1. I wonder what the sound quality was like? I always remember my mom and grandmother's stereo systems having such great sound. Today you have to do everything through bluetooth and it's easy to get poor sound quality if you get a cheap speaker.

  11. That sure is a blast from the past. My grandfather had a similar one.

    1. That's awesome that your grandfather had one. My grandma had a horizontal one. The top lifted to find the turntable. I'd never seen a vertical one though, so I was geeked.

    1. One of my bloggy friends says it's a 78 record player and radio. I do remember the 78s, they were thicker than the 33 vinyl albums that came later. MY gran had some. :)

    Happy Thursday, Rosey!

    1. I remember quite a few music players, but this one was new to me. I always wanted a jukebox. I'm glad I didn't get one!! To big, too heavy, and way too hard to move around, but those were cool too. :)

  25. That is so neat! I love these. I really wish I had one of them. I may need to just fine one.

    1. Retro sound can be good or bad. I remember 8-track tapes skipping in the middle of the song, and records skipping. ;)

    1. Yes, it is surely a classic. I was thinking it would be great in a museum. I think it was the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame that had a lot of old radios in it, this would be great there!
