Filmophone Record (U.K.) / c. 1931

back next

Design: The label name makes use of the spindle hole, but the geometrical shape of the logo does not satisfactorily reflect the flexible nature of the product.

History: Launched in 1930, Filmophone lasted until 1932. Its manufacturer claimed the records, made of transparent flexible celluloid, were far superior to standard records, but unfortunately they did not play well.
