The Gramophone was easily transported and offered a wide range of enjoyable music for assorted events. In Neillsville, Clark County, Wisconsin it added to the enjoyment of many happy occasions.


Emile Berliner, an immigrant from Germany who settled in Washington DC in 1884, invented the gramophone and "Mary Had a Little Lamb" was the first known recording.

The general public came to refer to the records and company as "His Master's Voice" or "HMV" because of the prominence of the phrase on the record labels. The painting "His Master's Voice" was made in the 1890s with the dog Nipper listening to an Edison cylinder phonograph. In 1899, Owen bought the painting from Francis Barraud, the artist, and had him substitute a Gramophone in place of the phonograph. In 1900 it became the trademark of the Victor Talking Machine Company in 1901.  "Nipper" the dog lived from 1884 to 1895 and is honored in England with a celebrated grave marker.
