Polyphon – 19th Century Jukebox

This amazing Polyphon, an early jukebox made in Germany in the late 19th century, still plays tunes on its metal discs of which the Museum has over 50 including “God save the Queen”

It has had an interesting life in and around Launceston and has recently been repaired so that it is once again coin operated – ask a steward for an old penny to put in the slot

The model is a “Mikado” the second largest of the Polyphon range.

“Strictly Polyphon” the new double CD of all 50 discs played on our working Polyphon now available for purchase
