Olympic-Record (U.K.) / c. 1913

back next

Design: A Victorian-looking design, owing to the delicate little filigree border running round the outside, reminiscent of an antimacassar or a lace doily, and the Latin-serif lettering used for the label name, a style invented during the Victorian age.

History: According to musicologist Norman Field of the U.K., "Olympic was first produced by the Sound Recording Company for Jacob Levy's Phono & Cycle Stores of Whitechapel, London. It appeared probably in the 1913-14 season, and ceased during WWI." Label scan courtesy of collector Greg Butler of the U.K.
