If We Hadn’t Broken up on Wednesday Night, Thursday Would Have Been a Year

Its not just the image title, its also the name of the record on this cool old Victrola that lives at the Lawrence History Center. I asked to photograph it when I was there on Saturday. They graciously complied.

These old 78 RPM records are cave drawings compared to todays MP3s, but they bring back a lot of memories. My dad had a ton of them. And by the way, they weighed a ton. In fact, you can easily carry several thousand songs in MP3 format to two songs (front and back) on a 78.

Anyway, feeling nostalgic for big clunky things, I decided to process this in a vintage kind of way.

Hope you like it.

  1. This brings back memories of dusty closets and the first family “music center” I remember which had 33 1/3, 45 and 78rpm choices for the turntable speed. I recently had to explain to my kids what it meant when I told them they sounded like a scratched record. How time flies, eh?

    Oh, great image too, by the way!
