November 23, 1889: First public demonstration of a jukebox

"The first public demonstration of the jukebox took place on November
23, 1889 at the Palais Royal Saloon in San Francisco (303 Sutter St.).
The inventor, Louis T. Glass, was the general manager of the Pacific
Phonograph company at the time. The Palais Royal Saloon was destroyed
in the 1906 earthquake and fire, thus its current location is still
undetermined.

The first jukebox, called the 'nickel-in-the-slot phonograph' became a
big hit. It did not have amplification, thus the listener has to
stand close to it to hear, and it can only play one cylinder, changed
every day or so. It became popularly known as a jukebox because 'juke'
was a slang for a brothel."
