The evocative 'Over There'
Little Wonder 721
Little Wonder records caused a sensation in North American 5 & 10¢ stores between 1915 and 1923.
They were single-sided and ran for just over a minute. Because of their small size they were made to play at 80rpm. The first discs were 5" in diameter, which later increased to 5½". Each was sold without a sleeve for 10¢.
This song was one of the best sellers. It still evokes memories of the American and Canadian servicemen who fell far from home on the battlefields of the First World War. Rest in Peace.
