HMV Victor Record 1

His Master's Voice Victor Record (Canada) / 1907

back next

Design: The typeface used for 'Victor Record' is a 'Grotesque' or sans serif. The Nipper image has been simplified to a line drawing, here reproduced as a photo-engraving rather than a finely-shaded wood-engraving. It seems to appear as a negative because it is printed in a light colour on a dark background.

History: Canadian releases of Victor records featured the 'His Master's Voice' slogan, Berliner's name, his 'Gram-O-Phone' corporate name and Montreal address.
