Visiting a museum in Mayor Buratovich - Argentina, closely related to the order Salesian of Don Bosco I could only take pictures of what I believe is a wire recorder.

Hello,

It is indeed a wire recorder.
Have a look at this page:

There is even a schematic available over there:

Gracias Bertus.

It seems that the model in my pictures was being offered in 1948.

Being born in 1947, it is somewhat surprising that during my childhood I've never heard of "recorders" of any kind but still have a fuzzy recollection of an article from a very elementary local magazine for hobbyists (with the original name of "HOBBY") proposing a DIY recorder (?).

Not so far in time, I am not sure but I think in one of the very first James Bond films, a thin wire is shown in one scene mentioned as used in a recorder. Not surprise if I am dead wrong. :confused:

Not interested either to watch all those movies to see if I am right. :p
