Took these pictures today at the Heeresgeschichtliches Museum (Military History Museum)which houses these artifacts of what started it all, the assassination of Archduke Francis Ferdinand, heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne. Pictured here are the car he was riding in, the clothes he was wearing when assassinated and chaise on which he died.

That's the first time that I've seen these artifacts.
Thanks for posting it.

James.

The Gas Shell bombardment record is supposed to be completely authentic. The recording engineer was Fred Gaisberg's brother Will. In the course of making the recording Will was mildly gassed, and got back to London in not the best of states. His brother maintained that this run down condition led to his catching the Spanish Flu from which he died later that year. The so called Spanish influenza pandemic was a nasty episode.

Great Thread!

Hey, How about people list all of the WWI song cylinders, and records or WWI songs that they know...such as Over There... On the way to the Tipperary...etc..

:o)

This is one of the better threads that I have seen in awhile!

A Victor Records catalog for January 1919. It was printed on November 18, 1918- just a week after the end of WW1. It shows an illustration of a soldier coming home on the front cover and includes several articles about Victor's recording artists inside, along with the new record titles released from Sep-Nov and January. A neat little fragment of history.
