“Union Without A Name – The Lord’s Prayer for All People”

Bond Zonder Naam is a Christian foundation founded in 1938. “The foundation aims to promote the improvement of man himself and the application of Christian charity in the civil life.”

This 7″ disk is the audiotrack that once accompanied a filmreel in the 40’s or early 50’s. The only information given is what you see on the two images above so I’m not sure what the film was about but a narrator tells about love, giving and the faith in god.

Here’s a preview:

Here’s the 12 minute (12mb) disk.

“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.)
