The evolution of the jukebox from functional coin-operated record changer to shrine of the rock 'n' roll generation is a journey through the popular aesthetics of pre- and post-war America.  From its original, wooden cabinet form, through to the chrome, fins and flashing lights of fifties conspicuous consumption, jukebox design both reflected and anticipated the rapidly changing demands of fashion-conscious youth.  Jukeboxes flourished for a relatively short golden age but the models of the fifties in particular still evoke nostalgic memories for many people.'
