From 1901, an early vaudeville-style recording providing brief topical turn-of-the-previous-century glimpses into the Boer War and of Irish integration into America.
The versatile tenor & comic songster Dan Quinn announces and performs this 2-minute vaudeville-style routine of Irish ethnic topical jokes and songs.
This recording is on a large 5-inch diameter Columbia Phonograph Company "Grand"
Edison, Columbia and the other major early record companies were
fairly consistent and well organized when it came to selection titles and category
