Lifecruisers contribution to theme Classic 1

Theme: Classic | Next week: Flexible
PhotoHunt in Technorati

What could be more classic than a gramophone? This one I spotted at the Technical Museum in Stockholm. I loved the note wall behind it too. It would have been so cool to have one at home and some old records to listen to.

Another very cool classic object we spotted there (of all the hundreds!) was this old tricycle for kids:

    My kids once saw a man riding one of those old-fashioned bicycles at a farmers’ market, and they were entranced. They all wanted a ride!

    Love your classics, specially the gramophone since I have heard so many stories of my great grandmother, hers and her parties! If I could go back in time I would like to attend one of her famous parties!
    I am back, had a wonderful brunch with German friends today before taking off!

    I did think for a minute about classical music, but no gramaphone here. An excellent choice, and the tricycles too, even if they don’t look too comfortable :)

    My tricycle was red. It lasted for a couple of years hard use. These seem like they have been treated nicely.

    Your pictures are very classic indeed. If I had such a tricycle when I was young I would have never been able to learn to ride a bike ! :lol:
