The National Jukebox: Historical Recordings from the Library of Congress

The National Jukebox is one of a suite of resources available to teachers from the US LIbrary of Congress.  While the resources tend to be biased towards US History and Culture, they are a rich trove of primary source materials.  The recordings were made between 1901 and 1925 by the Victor Talking Machine Company, the sound captured on wax cylinders.  The Jukebox is user friendly with easy to use search functions.
