Jukeboxes

AU0E3812.jpgWhile the majority of the Blackhawk Automotive Museum’s collection has a clear car association, there is also a room dedicated to the history of the Jukebox. I imagine this is because it is an area of interest to the patron of the museum. Various ages of jukebox have been preserved and restored. Some are quite basic in their design while the more recent ones have a greater level of complexity.

AU0E3810.jpgWhat they all seem to share is a design aesthetic that goes beyond the functional requirements of playing the music and encompasses a glamorous level of styling. The newer they were, the more exotic the styling. It might not be my sort of look and I don’t think I would want one in my house but I can certainly appreciate the effort that went into the design.
