“Health From The Sea”

A dutch 7″ that promotes Halitran (cod-liver oil.)

There’s no year on the label and no mention of a record company, brand or other clues and it’s packed in a blank brown envelope. I guess it’s from around the late 40’s or early 50’s.
I’m not sure but it could be the ‘soundtrack’ of a short informational film. In those days it was common to show films with a ‘reel’ projector which didn’t have an audio track. So the actual audio had to be played in sync on a separate record player.

A man tells you all about Norwegian fishing and cod-liver oil: there’s some brief fishing history, something about the fishing villages, the boats and the equipment. A little about the halibut, cod and dolphin and they recorded the sounds that the fish make and tell you about the production process of cod-liver oil and the beneficial effect of it.

Here’s a preview:
And here’s the record (18mb.)
