We are pleased to present our newly acquired early hearing aid. Known as a "Vibratube", it was manufactured by The American Earphone Company of New York in the 1920s.
The talker speaks into the funnel end of the tube and the sound is directed along the tube to an ear piece that the listener places in the ear canal.
Original purchase price was $5.00.
Currently on display in the doctor's office on the second floor of the museum.
