The typography shows different fonts and font families for each line, and the liberal use of full points (full stops) at the end of many lines, both holdovers from the Victorian era. The St. Hilda Colliery Band of South Shields were World Brass Band Champions in 1912, 1920, 1921 and 1924, making many 78 rpm recordings from 1912 onward.

History: Label scan courtesy of music researcher and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K., who notes: "This is Winner, not Edison Bell Winner. They used masters from Gennett, Paramount, Broadway and Banner, but most of the records are from their own masters."
