Berliner Gramophone Records...The first type of commercial disc records

The Berliner Gramophone Disc was the earliest type of commercial disc records. Produced by Emile Berliner. They were truly a 19th century phenomenon. By 1900 the Berliner disc was on its way out and the Victor Disc was the new and improved type of disc record. I have written on these records in other articles on this blog. But I thought it would be nice for you to see one of these records from around 1897. From the dawn of the age of recording.
