Favorite Record 1

Favorite Record (U.K.) / 1907

back next

Design: This typographically understated label shows the date the actual recording was made, August 13, 1907 (just below and to the right of the serial number). Note the Americanized spelling of 'Favorite,' as distinct from the English 'Favourite.' The printer has not taken the spindle hole into account, which cuts right into the song title.

History: One of several labels manufactured in Germany and marketed in England prior to World War I by the German-owned Fonotipia company.
