Colonial Perophone

Colonial Perophone (U.K.) / c. 1911

Design: The 'L' logo with the greyhound superimposed over it is identical to that appearing on the Colonial Record (see next page).

History: Like its nearly identical twin, Colonial Record, this label seems to have been destined for the Australian market (or other one-time colonies of the British Empire); the meaning of the 'Perophone' designation is unknown. The notation 'Pressed in Germany' or 'Made in Saxony' would disappear from record labels with the opening of WWI. Label scan courtesy of music researcher and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K.
