This was the first disc gramophone. It was invented by Emile Berliner and played a 7-inch disc. It became the Victor "trade mark" model and is seen in Barraud's famous painting with Nipper, the dog. Berliner's machine differed from Edison's in its use of a disc record rather than a cylinder. It also used a lateral groove rather than vertical.
