Two Cylinders, 1898

 These two cylinders may possibly be those of Roger Harding’s own records, or some that the Spencer’s devised in 1898:

this is “Carnival of Venice” by Charles P. Lowe, but it is for CERTAIN that Fred. Hylands is behind him, and Len Spencer announces:

Here’s the other one, This is “The Darkey’s Dream” played by Vess L Ossman, with Hylands SURELY on the piano behind him, Hylands is not playing the melody by the way, he’s just going off doing some complicated quick improvising behind Ossman(this is truly a fascinating cylinder!)

(Spencer announces here too)

I hope you enjoyed these!
