melvind Posted March 14 Share Posted March 14 (edited) Columbia “Napkin Ring” Cylinder Record 1905 A souvenir from the Lewis and Clark Centennial Exposition which ran from June 1st to October 15, 1905 in Portland, Oregon. A friend recently had the sound from his 1905 Columbia Napkin Ring Cylinder Record digitally transferred. The cylinder is from the Portland Lewis and Clark Exposition. This record is the clearest recording of a so called “Napkin Ring” record I have ever heard. Gladys, the narrator, put together a very clever and humorous dialog between her and her friend Ida all about meeting to attend the Fair. I did my best to caption the dialog. If anyone hears mistakes with my hearing of the words please let me know. I think it is pretty accurate. Lewis and Clark Exposision Cylinder 1905.m4v Here is a 1905 picture of the intersection of 3rd and Washington St. in downtown Portland where Gladys and Ida decided to meet. From there they would have taken a trolly to the Fair. Here are some views of the Exposition from 1905 Edited March 14 by melvind 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
