PHOTO AND MESSAGE ON PHONOGRAPH POST CARD (Aug, 1930)

PHOTO AND MESSAGE ON PHONOGRAPH POST CARD

Here is a new way to send a greeting to a friend. Phonograph records on post cards have been made before, but now a German inventor has combined the record with a real photograph. The sender has his picture taken, records his voice on top of it, and the result is a personal record ready for the mail. A long message is recorded on several post cards, each one numbered.

    This has been up here way too long for someone to not make a “voice mail” reference.
    Now what fun is it for me if I have to be the one to do it??
    It’s funny that one of these postcards in someone’s hands today is pretty much as useless as a compact disk would have been to someone then.
