Odeon (Germany) / c. 1947

back next

Design: The columns of the Odeon building, once thick and short (see the 1920s version), are now slender and elongated, with the label name following the outer curve in old-fashioned way.

History: Manufactured in Germany under the supervision of post-WWII Allied authorities, who were careful to allow no pro-Nazi sentiment. Label scan courtesy of collector Kjell Thorsen of Norway.
