This unique prototype machine represents an early attempt to record sound on celluloid strips. Franklin Goodale incorporated the Goodale Phonograph Company in Washington State in 1910. By 1911 he was in litigation with minority stockholders, who had thrown the company into receivership, and in 1913 Goodale and his wife were arrested in Milwaukee on allegations of stock fraud.
Nonetheless, this Goodale machine is beautifully engineered and lovingly constructed.
