Lincoln (U.S.A.) / 1926

back next

Design: An attractive label which features soft,  rounded curves to the border and label name, which contrast with the sprays of spiky laurel leaves either side of the cameo of Abraham Lincoln. The label name is drawn in an unusual reverse panoramic shape. The design treatment has much in common with the parent Cameo label.

History: Launched in 1923 by the Cameo Corporation, Lincoln represented that company's cheap record line. It survived until 1929, when Cameo and Pathe merged with Regal to form the American Record Corporation.
