Design: A very basic layout with minimal information, with no attempt made at visual appeal.

History: Thanks to Daniel Felhendler of France for the following updated info: "This record does not date from c. 1908 [as previously suggested] but can definitely fixed between January 1943 and February 1944. 'PART' matrices (seen at the foot) was a cataloguing system used by Pathé for external clients. If the disc was pressed by the Pathé plant at Chatou, near Paris, an M3 xxxxx number (e.g. 104614-M3) would be found etched in the wax, which would allow for an even more exact dating of the disc."
