The origins of the jukebox can be traced back to November 23, 1889 and an entrepreneur named Louis Glass. That's the day Glass installed a coin-operated Edison cylinder phonograph in the Palais Royale Saloon in San Francisco. It cost a nickel to play a single selection from the machine, and there was no amplification or speakers. Instead, there were four listening tubes. Despite the technical limitations, the machine, popularly known as "Nickel-in-the-Slot," was an instant success, earning over $1000 in less than half a year.
