Der Fonograf – A Yiddish Weekly Family Paper – Science, Literature and Humour, London 1909

5f fonograf 3I have a number of issues of der Fonograf, which describes itself as a Yiddish Weekly Family Paper for Science, Literature and Humor.  Published every Friday by the Jewish Press Ltd. at 40 Osborn Street, London.  My copies are from 1909, and it seems to have been published from about 1908 at least until 1914.  This publication seems to be almost unknown – I could find only one brief mention of it on the web.

So, to give this almost unknown London Yiddish publication some web-presence, here are a few images:
