ferris wheel sheet music cabinet...

jordans ferris wheel sheet music cabinet 2

a cabinet card from the 1890's of a ferris wheel sheet music cabinet - one darn amazing cabinet of curiosities. at 9 and a half feet tall, this must've been an imposing object, particularly weighted down with so much paper, as it supposedly held 4800 pieces of sheet music inside it... talk about an archive! i love the mix of different type faces and sizes on the back, which tells you everything you need to know.

Hi Sroden,
Along time ago, in january 2008, I wrote a comment about Nicolina del Sordo, and you asked me more info about Bermani and the label "I dischi del Sole". I never seen that comment, and today, by hazard, I saw your reply asking more info about Bermani. If you want some info you can write me an e-mail, I would be happy to tell you everything I know about italian field recordings and I dischi del Sole.
