Cornelius J. Carmody: 78 RPM Victrola Record Collection, 1910-1944

My grandfather, John J. Carmody, saved the 78 rpm Victrolas of my great grandfather, Cornelius J. Carmody, covering 1910-1928.

He added a few more from the late ’30s and ’40s and my dad, John J. Carmody, Jr., preserved the records in a trunk in the attic.

So that Con Carmody’s descendants could enjoy lovely classical music and hear the same skips, pops & crackles he heard, I digitized the 78s.

This collection includes records from Irish operatic tenor John McCormack, Alma Gluck, Ernestine Schumann-Heink, Efrem Zimbalist, Enrico Caruso, Hugo Kreisler, Amelita Galli-Curci, Reinald Werrenrath, Fritz Kreisler, Leopold Stokowski, Olga Samarov, Mischa Elman, Marian Anderson, Arturo Toscanini and Jose Iturbi.

Back before the modern Internet took off, I was a hoarder of found moments on the AM & FM radio airwaves.
