Old phonographs in a house in the Bristol vicinity of Vermont. The Victrola was not in fact made by Edison - the term may have been used as a generic name for phonographs. Photograph taken by Louise Rosskam when working for the Farm Security Administration (FSA) as part of Roosevelt's New Deal. The FSA and the Office of War Administration (OWI) produced some of the most remarkable social documentary photographs of the 20th century in their attempt to produce an encyclopaedic record of American life between 1935 and 1944.
