Design: The border shows a 'stroboscopic' pattern designed to appear to be standing still when the record is being played at the correct speed (specified here at 80 rpm), a technological gimmick which would gain popularity in the '30s and '40s.

History: Manufactured by the British Vocalion company, this 6 inch record was evidently aimed at the lower-priced segment of the record market. Label scan courtesy of music researcher and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K.
