I find this picture from shorpy.com fascinating. This was the caption provided by the site: Washington, D.C., circa 1917. A Victrola talking machine on the delivery wagon at the Woodward & Lothrop department store. Harris & Ewing.
1917? I am enthralled by the power of the picture to send my tiny brain reeling. It's going into Woody's? Do they have an electronics department? I wonder what the price was?
If you have never gone to shorpy.com I would recommend that you do now, if for nothing else to watch the comments that might come in.
