    This is why we don't plant sensitive annuals outdoors until (at least) Memorial Day in northern New England.

    Somehow, I wound up on an auction site in Austin TX.
    This is an interesting Dual turntable cabinet from the 1930's.
    Found some other stuff too that I didn't know one could buy, and lots of autographed LP's.

    That DUAL tt is interesting. I cannot place it (although I am far from a DUAL expert!). The Steidinger brothers called their company "DUAL" to brand their dual-powered motors (wind-up or electricity). The first DUAL branded record player was supposed to be this one (acoustic reproduction) from 1935, even though the DUAL name was used as far back as 1927.

    All the ones I've seen have more gee-gaws on it than that one. I cannot even tell from the photo if that's an acoustic or electric reproducer (I am guessing the latter). Any more images, or a link to the auction? ;)

    I might even try to work on my mansplaining, too. Mansplaining is a term used perjoratively, usually by women, describing a man's inborn need to make things understandable to the fairer sex, so that they don't have to worry their pretty little heads with such matters.
