"Ancient musical artifacts" The Vintage Music Store at 38th & Cedar Ave. has a lot of old stuff casually loaded into the display window, creating an atmosphere of 'rare finds inside!' The things in this photo include a vintage table-top radio from '50's, probably, a dusty old 78 rpm turntable which has not worked for decades, and a really cool victrola kind of record player called a 'Grafonola.' The best item is the bust of Beethoven, frowning at it all (he's not happy where he's ended up). As an aging musician who actually used stuff like this early on (not the Grafonola, but I heard Victrolas when I was a kid), this makes me feel vintage myself.
