Vintage Audio - 1919
This page of the Vintage Audio section of the website contains archive recordings of songs, skits and speeches from the year following the end of the war, 1919.
1919 was a year of continuing turmoil in the capitals of Europe; of growing demobilisation - and of resultant high unemployment.
Each recording is titled along with its performer.
All files are in MP3 and Adobe Flash format.
Sound quality is, alas, sometimes poor, indicative of the state of the then art of sound recording. Lyrics and the text of speeches accompany many files listed.
