Rainbow 1

Rainbow Sacred Record (U.S.A.) / 1921

back next

Design: A thing of rare beauty (one of my all-time favourite designs!). Delicate use of strong Gothic lettering, with a white release, superimposed across a lovely illustration of a rainbow in the clouds, with sunbeams shining through. The beaded border, printed in red, adds another nice touch (compare with the Brunswick label of 1919).

History: Launched in 1921 by Homer Rodeheaver, a well-known singer-evangelist, and lasting until 1926.
