Homochord (U.K.) / c. 1914

Design: The outer border has been interrupted at the foot, and the border enclosing the imprinted information takes on a different shape to allow for the pasting-over of a royalty stamp, where an attractive, organically-decorated capital 'H' now appears. The floral bracket beneath the illustration has been removed.

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.
