What’s In the Box?

Let’s see who is up on their vintage culture…

All week I’ve been giggling about this box.  It has been in my classroom for the last eight years.  I pulled it out last week because it’s  becoming a storage nuisance.

Any ideas?

  1. Is it a box for files. Or for film/cine-cameras.

  2. A record player or tape player. It looks like what ever it is; is remarkedly out of date.

  3. Just think what you could sell it for to A&E Pickers ..... it's a 60s video/audio player .... as I recall the last time I saw one was in 6th grade Health Class before seeing the "sex talk video" :-)

  7. Good guesses everyone! I will have the answer soon...when I'm not deliriously tired from the first week back with 2nd graders! :)

    @Banker Chick - yes it is! Ancient I think.

    @3rdnlong - I didn't even think about selling it...shoot! :)

    @Vince - The Los Angeles representative of the festival was announced at the Big Irish Fair we went to a few months ago. Those pictures make it look like a beautiful festival! Are you going?

  10. I would say film stip projector but because I see the power cord opening it can't be...doesn't seem large enough for a record player...but then there's nothing to judge size by...is it a listening post?

    When I moved I still kept my film projector because I have two very cool films that aren't on DVD or VHS...I did have a .5 unit teaching course on how to run projectors, overheads and film strip projectors...fun!
