Lambda

Lambda (U.K.) / c. 1938

back next

Design: The 'lambda' is a letter in the Greek alphabet, corresponding to the Roman L, and is shown as a logo at the top of the label. Why the name should have been chosen for the label is unknown; perhaps, like the libra 'pound L' sign used by the Lindström company, it was the initial letter of the company name. As with other labels, gold print on a red background makes for poor contrast and is barely legible.

History: Unknown (have info? Please send to info.re.78s@shaw.ca). Label scan courtesy of musicologist and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K.
