Design: The yin-yang design is seen on other labels (e.g. Specialty), usually on a horizontal plane, but is very effectively used here on a vertical axis, in contrasting positive/negative type and zones.

History: Launched in 1945, Black & White was acquired by Capitol in the 1950s. Label scan courtesy of collector Georg Richter of Germany.
