It was a normal afternoon where a knowledge hungry curious soul was working in his lab in Menlo Park. This American inventor wanted to come up with a device that would record telephonic communications.

His experiment led him in creating the revolutionary Phonograph which played back the short song he recorded - “Mary had a little lamb”. It was the invention of the ‘Wizard Of Menlo Park’ Thomas Edison!

Edison later used the wax cylinder technique developed by Charles Tainter and the phonograph went on to become a popular source of entertainment. In 1906 he also unveiled a series of musical and theatrical selections through his National Phonographic Company.

He indeed stood up to his words, “The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.”
