Victrola-Washington Square Park NYC

One Sunday afternoon in Washington Square Park, I happened upon a man by the name of Eric Byron, who had constructed a portable wind-up phonograph out of Victrola parts, mounted onto a kid’s wagon. It was too cool for words as he entertained the passersby with music by Enrico Caruso, Louis Armstrong, and other great artists from the early part of the 20th century. I’m not sure if he’s still around, but it’s worth checking the northeast corner of the park on a Sunday afternoons.
