Design: The 'clipped-off' lettering is typical of Art Deco-influenced type design, the geometric shapes and sharp edges (e.g. Lumen) in reaction to the organic, sinuous forms of pre-WWI Art Nouveau (e.g. Bulldog Record).

History: Unknown (have info? Please send to info.re.78s@shaw.ca). Label scan courtesy of collector Kjell Thorsen of Norway.
