Antique Xray Print, The Insides Of things Shown By X Rays, 1938 medical, skeleton, bones. Published in Great Britain.

Before the availability of the tape recorder and during the 50s when vinyl was scarce people in the Soviet Union began making records of banned Western music on discarded x-rays. With the help of a special device, banned bootlegged jazz and rock ‘n’ roll records were “pressed” on thick radiographs salvaged from hospital waste bins and then cut into discs of 23-25 centimeters in diameter. They would cut the X-ray into a crude circle with manicure scissors and use a cigarette to burn a hole.
