Researching records on a medical theme
Couple of postcard flexidisc records with a bit of river theme. They might be used in a mix for the Afon festival http://www.may-nard.org/afon
Top centre image is the Guildhall from Lendal Bridge, crossing the river Ouse. It is mentioned in the recording…
Aberglasyn Pass N. Wales. The bridge over the river Glaslyn has a nice story connected to the Devil, as do various other bridges..
Another selection for the season – get fit and book your holiday!
Ive collected a few of these old postcard flexidisc records over the years, mostly the audio on them bears no relation to the image or the places shown as far as I can tell. An exception is this one from York.
Many more flexidisc postcard records in this youtube playlist here
As it’s panto season I thought I’d share these Selcol flexidisc versions here. Discogs describes Selcol as a ‘UK plastics manufacturer active during the 1950s and 1960s.’
The discs are made from what seems like a very soft, light plastic film (compared to other flexidiscs) backed with printed card.
You can see they have ‘Cut here’ printed on the sides to indicate they were originally cut from something larger, but I dont know what.. I was quite surprised how playable they are though!
