Apollo Gramophone Record

Apollo Gramophone Record (U.K.) / c. 1913

Design: A rare example of the label name following the downward curve of the lower segment rather than the upper. The sans serif lettering has been hand-drawn to radiate from the centre (because the 'G' in 'Gramophone' lacks a cross-bar it looks like a 'C.') The extra space after the word 'Apollo' is the result of the word 'Gramophone' being centred.

History: Unknown (have info? Send to info.re.78s@shaw.ca). Label scan courtesy of musicologist and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K.
