Tokyo Record

Tokyo Record (Japan) / c. 1919

Design: The arc shape of the label name, the use of the word 'Record' and the period used after the label name suggest this record dates from the pre-1920s. The gradated 'grooves' make the lettering look as though it is melting off the top of a dome. A snow-capped Mount Fuji is seen inside the laurel wreath.

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.
