Design: For the label name, a bold script with a vertical emphasis yet rounded in form, the letters unconnected. The style is ahead of its time, since this so-called 'modern' style would become synonymous with the Art Deco movement, which took off in the mid-1920s. The typeface used for the imprinting is Korinna, which first appeared in Germany in about 1907 and is still in vogue.

History: Unknown (have info? Please send to info.re.78s@shaw.ca). Label scan courtesy of music researcher and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K.
