Description: 

When Horace walks to the square on a Saturday he is struck by the crowds of country people standing outside the "doors of drug- and music-stores," listening to the songs being played on radios and phonographs (112). Presumably the radio in its "imitation wood cabinet" is in the drugstore, and the phonographs with "pebble-grain horn-mouths" can be bought in the music store. It seems unlikely that Jefferson would have more than one of either kind of store. In any case, this icon represents them both - or all.
