Sonora Baby Grand - Owner's Manual (c.1920).

This is my favorite phonograph. I bought a Baby Grand about 30 years ago and it's still running strong! Click on the above link to see the original owner's manual.

The image files are about 200K each (so you can actually read the manual!), so it will take a while to load if have a dial-up connection.
