Posted 15 April Notes on the Beginnings of Concertina Playing in Ireland, — by Dan Worrall Although the Irish are known for their long folk memory, the story of how of concertina playing began there has been largely lost; it is often tagged to a threadbare tale of mariners bringing them up the Shannon estuary to Clare.
A Brief History of the Anglo Concertina in the United States by Dan Worrall In the United States the Anglo-German concertina was very popular during the middle and late nineteenth century, but by the early twentieth century it had all but vanished from American popular culture, becoming only a Hollywood symbol of “the old days”.
For the related movie, see North Face film. For the train station, see Eigerwand railway station. The Nordwand, German for “north wall” or “north face,” is the north face of the Eiger also known as the Eigernordwand: It is one of the three great north faces of the Alps , along with the north faces of the Matterhorn and the Grandes Jorasses known as ‘the Trilogy’.
At 2, metres inside the mountain lies the Eigerwand railway station. The station is connected to the north face by a tunnel opening at the face, which has sometimes been used to rescue climbers. The Eiger Trail, at the base of the north face, runs from Eigergletscher to Alpiglen railway stations. The two groups, led by the experienced Heckmair, cooperated on the more difficult later pitches, and finished the climb roped together as a single group of four.
Close view of the north face from the west ridge A portion of the upper face is called “The White Spider”, as snow-filled cracks radiating from an ice-field resemble the legs of a spider.

Dating Lachenal-made instruments is not as easy as with Wheatstones, for which the Wayne Ledgers preserve the date of sale details of thousands of Wheatstone instruments (they are now in the Horniman Museum, and are now fully searchable on-line here).
A decent survey of Lachenal’s family history and his introduction of mass-production techniques into concertina manufacturing is that of Stephen Chambers , now on concertina. After around 18 years of concertina manufacture at the Conduit Street workshops, to , the new design of concertina resulting from Louis Lachenal’s new manufacturing processes were announced in Wheatstone’s promotional leaflet of mid , the sole surviving copy of which is now in the Horniman Museum Wayne Collection.
The 40 or so Lachenal concertinas in the Collection show the development of his key concertinas based on the designs he had produced whilst at Wheatstones, but the Lachenal factory built up a widespread network of dealers throughout Britain and around the world; we show below a selection of links to some of the dealers’ labels appearing on Lachenal instruments in the Collection.
We list below short summaries of some of the Lachenal instruments in the Collection, including Item C. It was owned by Marie Lachenal , Louis’s daughter, who was a noted performer and promoter of the family’s instruments throughout the s and s. An early appearance of reeds stamped in a tiny font-size with the r eed-frame size-number , corresponding to the number specified on the circular pan-labels.
The instrument has a spurious ” C Wheatstone’s Patent Concertina ” label, at the very top of which, is added in very small lettering ” equal to “! Now since the instrument still has the Louis Lachenal address on each of the pan-labels such address details are almost always excised if the instrument is marketed or re-labelled by a dealer one might assume that this spurious label is of Louis Lachenal origin. Original fine rosewood-veneered case.
A degree of recent “restoration” has led to the instrument now having a reproduction Louis Lachenal label, new pallets, new valve-flaps to reeds, and a new sub-fret baffle. The inner action face has the stamp of David J Leese , restorer and repairer, dated Louis Lachenal label, serial number on sub-fret white chamois baffles. It was owned by Marie Lachenal , [ http: Here is a selection of the Dealers’ Labels found on instruments within the Lachenal section of the Concertina Museum Collection:

Some Notes on Lachenal Concertina Production and Serial Numbers by Stephen Chambers New evidence for the role played by Louis Lachenal in the early manufacturing history of C. Wheatstone & Co., and some points of reference to use in seeking to date Lachenal concertinas.
Breathing Colour is an installation-based show that takes a deeper look at the way colour behaves, exploring shapes, materials, shadows and reflections. How does the light during the day influence the colours and materials? What is the relationship between form and colour? When does a colour lift up a shape and give it a new dimension? What is the role of shadow? All elemental aspects of design. The ultimate aim is to pit the power of colour against the power of form. In my work I think about how coloured objects affect other objects and how all the objects behave in a certain setting.
How important is size or volume for a colour and how do coloured objects influence one another? The different materials have an impact on each other and certain colours can accentuate horizontal shapes, while others are better for vertical forms.

Introduction Rather than provide a comprehensive history of the area or its discovery and exploration by the west, the main purpose of this section is to provide an overview that ties together my books and reading on these topics. It is as much for my own benefit as for any third party reader. It is a guide which is hopefully easier to navigate than a list of book titles.
If you want to go deeper into the history of exporation in China and Tibet, then I highly recommend the complementary pages of Matthias Claus on “Reisen und Abenteuer in China und Tibet. One page is a comprehensive annotated chronology of exploration of China and Tibet from – , and the other covers the same material, but is organized alphabetically, by person.
I had chased bears all over the mountains off and on for several weeks with my good friend Don, who’s a very experienced bear chaser. I’d had opportunities to shoot many bears but none got me excited enough to .
Afterwards, I regretted not taking the shot. I resolved not to make the same mistake again. The day started at 3: We were several miles from the truck. The day was progressing like all the other days over the past few weeks. As far as gear, I was only carrying water, a Glock 20 10MM , a knife, and a few emergency essentials like matches. The Glock was loaded with 15 cartridges of Double Tap Ammunition.
I never did get a very good look at the bear but the idea of shooting him with a handgun appealed to me. He appeared to be a mature bear and was an unusual color. I had a small view of a shoulder through brush and tree branches at yards.
Anglo Concertina Buyer’s Guide Lachenal In a competitive concertina-manufacturing and selling environment, the Lachenal company produced a range of very fine instruments, including many “student” models. Anglo Lachenals are, as far as I know, all considered “student” grade. They’re good instruments with “real” steel or brass concertina reeds and construction, but the action and sound won’t be as nice or as consistent as some other makes mentioned below.
These instruments were all made in the UK, so “vintage English” usually refers to a Lachenal, Wheatstone, Jeffries or Crabb, and implies superior compared to the Italian Stagis quality of construction, sound, and playability action. If you can afford it, one of these vintage concertinas will be a fine instrument on which to learn, and frankly, you might never need to purchase another instrument as long as you live.
