A phonograph for Christmas, 1907

The best thing on the tree for Christmas, courtesy of Manchester & Dodds in Skidmore, Missouri in 1907 (click to read):

The best thing on the tree.  Nothing in the way of a Christmas gift will give so much pleasure to so many for so long a time as an Edison Phonograph.  The enjoyment it affords is the kind that lasts and the kind that every member of the family appreciates.  It is a gift, not for the time being, but for all time, taking on a new interest with every new record.  The Phonagraph sings, plays, or talks.  It is as gifted in grand opera as in minstrel fun.  it means as much to the little folks as to the grown folks.  Just now the eternal question is, "What shall the Christmas present be?"  The answer is, "An Edison Phonograph."  For your home or for any home a Phonograph means the beginning of a long term of genuine enjoyment.  Manchester & Dodds.
