Grand Opera will be telephoned to private homes



John Elfreth Watkins : engineer
Grand Opera will be Telephoned to private homes, and will sound as harmonious as though enjoyed from a theatre box. Automatic instruments reproducing original airs exactly will bring the best music to the families of the untalented. Great musicians gathered in one incljsure in New York will, by
manipulating electric keys, produce at the same time music from instruments arranged in theatres or halls in San Francisco or New Orleans.
