Homochord 7

Homochord (U.K.) / c. 1914

Design: The capital 'H' appearing at the foot has been reduced in size (and is now accidentally upside-down; the cross-bar should be higher), probably because pasted-on royalty stamps did not completely cover the larger image. The red and gold colour combination, which often presented legibility problems, works well here.

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.
