The Columbia Grafonola

I had such a great time with Chris (see below) that I concluded, “gotta get me one.” She’s not a true Victrola, but a Columbia Grafonola, of Columbia Record Company. I haven’t really explored thoroughly, so I’m not sure of year or model, but it seems to fall in the 1911-1925 range. Found her at an antique shop in Bountiful, which had 7 or 8 real beauties. The shopkeeper is very knowledgeable.

Bonus points for anyone who can name the tune.
