Shackleton’s ‘Endurance’ Expedition, August 8, 1915: Gramophone concerts

–from Sir James Wordie’s diary, published as “Polar Crusader: Exploring the Arctic and the Antarctic”–

“8 August. On Sunday evenings it has been the rule all through the winter to have a grampohone concert; the records would have been played much oftener, were we not short of needles, but though over a hundred records were brought, the needles seem to have been entirely overlooked.”
