Linguaphone (U.K.) / 1932

Design: The label name follows the outer curve, in an old-fashioned way, in a lettering style that is a hybrid between sans serif and old style roman. A plain but effective typographic label, one of a boxed or album set that would have been supplied to subscribers, and thus without the need for visual point-of-purchase sales appeal.

History: Label scan courtesy of music researcher and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K. With the Nazis on the verge of seizing power in Germany (which took place in 1933), this would have been an appropriate time to brush up on one's German.
