Mechanical music devices at the Zagreb City Museum

The City of Zagreb museum has the most extraordinary collection of mechanical musical devices, running the whole gamut from pianolas, to automatic music scrolls, to victrolas, to very impressive painted and lacquered cabinets. I think some of you will find this interesting, particularly those of you interested in early cinema (a lot of the scrolls feature Edison).
