HMV Victor

"His Master's Voice" Victor (Canada) / 1928

back next

Design: A very collectible 'picture label' featuring children's songs.

History: After Victor took over Berliner's Canadian operation, the Victor name received more prominence. The letters VE inside an oval indicate an electrical recording (which began in 1925, but was not publicized until 1926). Scans of the complete set, shown below on the U.S.-released Victor label, are courtesy of collector Ken Hagelthorn of the U.S.A.
