Lawrence House Museum

19th Century German Polyphon

This amazing Polyphon, an early jukebox made in Germany in the late 19th century, still plays tunes on its metal discs of which the Museum has over 50 including "God save the Queen"

It has had an interesting life in and around Launceston and has recently been repaired so that it is once again coin operated

The model is a "Mikado" the second largest of the Polyphon range
