A Modern Recording

A Modern Recording (U.K.) / c. 1951

Design: Above the spindle hole is the figure of Eros, the Greek god of love, whose statue stands atop a column in the centre of Piccadilly Circus in London (the figure also appears on the Piccadilly label). Around the outer edge is a stroboscopic border, which was popular in the 1930s. The imprinting is carelessly done.

History: Apparently a custom production by a private recording studio for the London Square Dance Association. Nina Wilde issued a book on behalf of the Association in 1952, showing step-by-step square dancing action photographs, titled 'Square Dancing at Sight.'
