The way we used to do it

Shawn Borri demonstrates how music was made through the use of an antique 1888 recording phonograph during Saturday’s 37th annual Ol’ Fashun Threshun Days, sponsored by the Bureau Valley Antique Club. The annual event is held each year at Albrecht’s grove, southwest of Ohio, and features a variety of demonstrations, like wheat threshing and wood sawing. Visitors also saw displays of vintage tractors and gas engines. Ol’ Fashun Threshun Days was one of several events taking place this weekend throughout Bureau County.
