Design: A beautifully-drawn and full-colour Union Jack, with the corporate monogram (FMR&Co) at its centre, flies proudly across the upper face of the label. The label name, set at an unusual off-centred angle around the outer perimeter, is also treated boldly, in Latin (triangular-serifed) lettering.

History: A product of F.M. Russell & Co. of London. Label scan courtesy of music researcher and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K.
