Design: The rounded corners follow the style of the contemporary Columbia label. The cap H at the foot, likely occupying the space for a royalty stamp, is a throwback to the Victorian era, but has the same leafy background feel as the illustration in the upper segment.

History: Label scan courtesy of music researcher and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K. Related to the German-founded Homokord label, distributed in England prior to WWI, this British-made 'Baby' issue is from a small-diameter record.
