This Is What an iPod Looked Like in the Roaring Twenties

By Leslie Horn on at

In the 1920s, the world was still about 60 years away from the first Walkman, and about 80 from the iPod, but portable music was still apparently a thing. All you had to do was rig a little radio to your garter and a speaker around your head, as the 20s lady in the above video demonstrates.

You also, at that point, had to wear a garter. And you have to wonder how the whole portable thing actually worked, because there couldn't have possibly been wireless MP3 player-sized devices. But the Discman, the Walkman, and the iPod are all thanking this woman — and her inventiveness — for their important contribution to society. [OhHaveYouSeenThis]
