In 1889, the jukebox made its debut at the Palais Royale Saloon in San Francisco, California. The music machine was originally called the “nickel-in-the-slot player," and it quickly became an overnight sensation, replacing the player piano. Today, the jukebox itself has been eclipsed by more modern media players, but the device can still be found all over the world. See its timeless appeal in a Fort Worth, Texas, establishment.
