John Bull Record (U.K.) / c. 1910

Design: A plain design, with a bulldog logo (though unrelated to the mythical person of John Bull, the 'typical' Englishman).

History: A label made by the German Beka company, despite the 'English Record Co.' imprint. Bill  Dean-Myatt of the U.K. writes: "John Bull is another unbelievably complex label to unravel. They drew their masters from Beka, as well as Favorite and Dacapo. It was produced for an unknown company that is thought to have sold gramophones and records from door-to-door and paid for on a weekly basis."
