Private Collection: c.1961 Motorola Record Player

         This Motorola record player was produced in 1961. The original owner purchased it and it was used to play the music for his wedding in 1963. It is portable in that the speakers fold in and latch shut as does the top. It has a handle so it can be easily carried. It still works to this day.

         The current owner inherited it from the original owner and it is now in a private collection in NW Iowa.

Model No. SP-26-B
