Design: Three distinctly different font families in the label name, all in bold: 'National' appears in Bodoni Bold, a 'modern' font with thick verticals and thin horizontals, developed in the 18th century; a bold sans serif for 'Hollywood,' developed in the 19th century; and bold Engravers Script, derived from 18th century copperplate engraving, for 'Recording Disc.'

History: Unknown (have info? Please send to info.re.78s@shaw.ca). Label scan courtesy of collector Joaquin López of Mexico, who notes: "A record for home recording. This one has some Mexican music. Acording to the seller, it [the content] was from a radio broadcast."
