The first Jukebox, originally called the “nickel-in-the-slot player”,
made it’s debut at The Palais Royale Saloon in San Francisco. It
was constructed by The Pacific Phonograph company. Patrons
listened to the music through individual stethoscope-like tubes
attached to an Edison electric phonograph which was fitted
inside a wood cabinet.
