Broadcast (U.K.) / 1927

Design: A well balanced and colour-coordinated design for a small-size label (at 7" across rather than the standard 10", the labels came down to 2 1/8" diameter instead of the usual 3 1/2", the design area further reduced here by the outer 'ring' of type). The world map shows Europe at the centre of things.

History: Originally produced by Vocalion, which was taken over in 1932 by the Crystalate conglomerate. Scan of French-made label below courtesy of collector Luca Barzaghi of Italy.
