1950's Spear Phonograph

Spear child's phonograph from the 1950s. These were very common phonographs. As I've mentioned before, this was at the time when the "grown-ups" began switching over to the new 33 and 45 RPM speeds. And most childrens records were still pressed at 78 rpm.

The Spear was interesting in while the turntable itself was electrically powered, the sound itself was acoustically reproduced with no amplification!
It didn't sound too bad either. But the very LAST thing I would play on this is a very rare 5" Little Wonder record from the 1910s as shown here...
