Americanphone (Morocco) / c. 1959

back next

Design: An unusual piece of hand-lettering for the label name, the vertical strokes bending like the palm tree in the background, while the baseline follows a gentle arc over the spindle-hole.

History: Label scan courtesy of collector Ken Hagelthorn of the U.S.A. Thanks to Emerson for the following updated info: "Americanphone is from Morocco [not Egypt, as previously suggested]. This is from late 50s early 60s, being the second design, the first being an eagle in a blue and yellow background."
