Pathé Frères Phonograph Co. (Canada) / 1916

Design: The crowing red rooster, symbol of France, stands here atop a shining record (hopefully, its talons have been clipped). At the foot is the well-recognized Pathé logo in the Coca-Cola script style. On Canadian releases, the outer banner extended further around the label than their U.S. counterparts (see next label), although the label specifies "For U.S. consumption only." Pathé labels usually featured a black background, but other colours (as here) were sometimes used. Note that the playing speed is specified at 80 rpm.

History: As the previous label.
