Everybodys (U.S.A.) / c. 1925

back next

Design: Another label that lifts the Victor 'bat-wing' frame (see also Cleartone Record), but in this case the illustration (of a wide variety of people) fits inside it very well. The printing of a light colour on a dark background produces the 'negative' appearance; in the scan below, the image has been reversed so that the original illustration appears to be right-reading. It seems that in the 1920s, 'everybody' wore a hat!

History: This label was in existence for a short time only, from late 1924 to mid-1925. Label scan courtesy of collector Ken Hagelthorn of the U.S.A.
