Item: A box of 78rpm records from the 30s?, 40s?, 50s?
Location: Newcastle/Hunter Valley
Price: Free
Item Condition: Various, of course.  Probably what you might expect from 70+ year old records.
Reason for selling:  Give away to interested local collector.
Payment Method: Pickup Only
Extra Info:  

 Records from my parents and probably their parents deceased estate discovered when clearing out the house.  Packed away in the box in 1971 judging from the newspaper wrapping.  It appears as though each record has been wrapped individually.

 

There is a wine box full, so I guess about 100 or so.

 

I unpacked the first 10  to give an idea.  Seems to be popular music of the time.

 

The song is ended ... / Dawning    Taylor    Parlophone

Ramone  /  Girl of my dreams    Austin    HMV

A little street...  /  Tenderly    Nat King Cole    Capitol

O, Sydney I love you  /  Waiting for the ship    Kelleway    Parlophone

i remember a friend of my father's taking a 6 x 4 trailer of 78's to the tip, a sad day for history, to young to appreciate the significance of what was happening

Barry Humphries has written of his distress during the first few days of being employed at a record company.  He was required to take 78's to the tip, he was distressed by the loss of history.  It probably inspired him later to release his CD compliations of 1930's nostalgia music.

 

I hope these records are able to find a good home.
