Asbestciment (Belgium) / 1950

back next

Design: From the collage in the upper segment, Asbestciment, whose factory is pictured on the right, seems to have had a line of drainpipes and corrugated-style roofing, presumably made of (carcinogenic, or cancer-causing) asbestos mixed with cement, causing demolition contractors to wear protective gear (see pic below).

History: Label scan courtesy of musicologist and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K.
