Homochord (U.K.) / c. 1919

Design: Here the label name runs sraight across the label, contained within the triple-striped flag of Israel (which symbolizes the talit or prayer shawl), instead of following the outer curve, and with a Star of David at the spindle hole. The colour combination of blue and white reflects the colour of the Israeli flag (first introduced in 1897, the flag was officially adopted as symbolizing the Zionist movement in 1933).

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.
