Goodenough (U.S.A.) / c. 1923

back next

Design: An extremely simple layout, using a bold condensed stub-serif font for the label name, which is . . . good enough, perhaps. There are similarities to the Early American Dances label produced for Henry Ford.

History: Evidently a client label, supplied to the Goodenough Piano Company by an unnamed pressing plant, and probably used as a promotional giveaway, which would explain its lack of visual appeal. Label scan courtesy of collector Graham Farnell of the U.K.
