These kind of pictorial plates are very famous in France, most of the time by set of 12 dealing with different subjects, here "The Great Discoveries". While playing the cylinder phonograph, the parents say to their children: "Listen: it's grandfather that you are hearing".  This is the No 7 of the set.

This picture comes from the "Antique Phonograph: Gadgets, Gizmos & Gimmicks" book written by Timothy C. Fabrizio and George F. Paul.  It can be ordered at: PHONOPHAN
