Excellent work! Well do I remember those 78 rpm shellac records! My parents had an extensive collection. Changing the needle was the worst feature of them. I always left that to my father!

Artist's Description

In the earliest days of acoustical recording, the Victor Talking Machine Company of Camden, New Jersey was heavily into advertising. They claimed their stars were almost in the room with you. Such was the realism of their recordings. Well maybe not quite. But the power and greatness of their singing comes through to this day. Caruso, Farrar, Sembrich, Ponselle, De Luca, Tetrazzini, and many more were considered the great luminaries of the Met in New York. It really was a golden age of singing. Opera stars were feted and idolized in the press. The gramophone played records at 78 RPM. They were made from shellac and highly brittle. And expensive in the early 1900's. Microphones and electrical recording came later in 1925. These early talking machines were hand wound. You had to change a steel needle after each play.

About Ira Shander

Ira Shander

Hello, and thank-you for taking time to visit my web site. As a long time illustrator specializing in pen and ink, photography developed as a means for me to become expressive in color. My specialty as a line artist has always been history and architecture. I've created series for major companies, publishers, and cultural institutions throughout the United States. Take time to visit some of my galleries. I welcome commissions such as house portraits and hobby related subject matter. Again, take a peek at the galleries to get a better idea. I hope that you enjoy both means of expression and visit often. Thanks, Ira Shander
