Design: The treatment of the logo and surrounding borders is stronger than the previous label, giving a richer effect.

History: Label scan courtesy of collector Georg Richter of Germany, who notes: "Originally recorded in May 1908 by engineer William Sickler Darby, this track was re-issued in January 1916. The song on the other side of the same record was by the same artist, Lal Chand Bural ("amateur"!) but featured a completely different label design [see next page]."
