  1. Tim, Do we know what equipment the first talkies shown in Europe used? If early Vitaphone films (independent disk + film) were shown, it may be that there were 12As imported to Europe for that purpose in which case 12As may have been heard in the 20s or early 30s in Britain and perhaps in continental Europe. An arcane subject, but you’d know better than me. Best, Mark
