Design: A floral scroll border appears around the outside. The illustration, simplified into flat shape, is supported by an elaborate floral bracket centred on the spindle hole, while the imprinting information below the spindle hole is enclosed in a curving border. An advertising blurb is added: 'Clear & perfect Reproduction.' The red, gold and chocololate brown colour combination is much more dynamic than previous issues.

History: The German company Homokord sold Homophone and Homochord (the Anglicized version of Homokord) records in England between about 1907 and 1930. Label scan courtesy of musicologist and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K.
