This is one of three antique phonograph players I spotted recently that were part of the decor at a restaurant in Jeddah. All three are in immaculate condition, which makes me wonder if they are actually replicas or the genuine thing. One of them has a round wood base, plus the RCA logo image of the cute dog listening to the music. Each also had a vinyl record on the spinner, but I didn’t have a chance to take a closer look, so I’m not sure if they were 33s or LPs. At any rate, they make for a gorgeous display. I thought it was rather strange though to have such a display, when many people in the Kingdom believe that music is forbidden in Islam.
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby and teenage son. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
