Curators at the National Museum of London have discovered what they believe to be the first ever recordings of a family Christmas.


They were made 110 years ago by the Wall family who lived in New Southgate in North London.

There are 24 clear recordings on wax cylinders which were made using a phonograph machine between 1902 and 1917.

Nice to see how Christmas was spend around 110 years ago.

“One, remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Two, never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it. Three, if you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don't throw it away.”

I can't get over how different the world was just 110 years ago. I like how Cromwell pronounced "again" like "agayn".


Three cheers for history and the future!







I always imagined the future as a time of more reason, empathy, and peace, not less. It's time for a change.
