Dansette Record Player from the late 1950s



The parents of Anthony Sargeant bought one of these in the late 1950s. It was put into the front room at 59 Allerford Road, Catford SE 6. Covered in a slightly textured thin vinyl coloured silver and maroon it had an autochanger mechanism which allows up to 8 records to be played one after the after. If the records were the old solid shellac 78 rpm records they would drop with a resounding thud onto the turntable in an alarming manner.
