Happy Birthday, Harold Clayton Lloyd (April 20th, 1893 - March 8th, 1971)
"My humor was never cruel or cynical. We just took life and poked fun at it. We made it so it could be understood the world over, without language barriers. We seem to have conquered the time barrier, as well."
One of its kind: Apollo Lyre 1848
This instrument, the only known example of its kind, was probably inspired by the melophone, which a French player presented in a concert in New York in 1841. The upward-pointing handles produce pressure and suction to sound a diatonic scale, as in an accordion or harmonica.
Currently on display at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
