Design: The playfully curved lines of the label name lettering reflect the curved borders. The elaborately printed 'shell' has been done by lithography, in a minimum of four colours (yellow, blue, red, black), with the imprinting done later by letterpress.

History: Unknown (have info? Please send to info.re.78s@shaw.ca). The Stadion after which this label was named was built for the fifth Olympics, held in 1912 in Stockholm, Sweden, and the illustration shows the brick-built crenellated towers that formed the entryway to the main stadium. The event was a great success and a continuing source of pride for Sweden. Label scan courtesy of music researcher and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K.
