- [ca. 1945]
Item is an Edison brand dictating machine for voice recording, often used in office work to dictate correspondence and other documents to be transferred into type. The recording was made on reusable wax cylinders, which could hold approximately 1000 words and could be re-recorded over 100 times. The wax cylinders were replaced by Dictabelt technology, which recorded on a plastic belt, in 1947.
