Homocord 6

Homochord (U.K.) / c. 1919

back next

Design: Feminine ornament such as the floral riband border (and other elements, such as the decorated initial at the foot) begin to appear in the 1920s, perhaps because women had increased affluence and buying power after the war. A softer effect is also achieved by the rounded corners to the panels.

History: The German company Homokord sold Homophone and Homochord records in England between about 1907 and 1930. Label scan courtesy of music researcher and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K.
