Crown Perfect Record (U.K.) / c. 1918

Design: The label name has been very nicely hand-lettered to fit within the upper segment, though the outer border is drawn in a thick-and-thin 'Oxford' style which does not match the single-line border beneath, and sticker placement is not quite accurate.

History: Evidently old Columbia stock which was being re-marketed through American entrepreneur Harry Selfridge's store on Oxford Street in central London (see next page). Label scan courtesy of musicologist and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K.
