Design: The use of Victorian-era organic tendrils (and the overall formatting) is very similar to that seen on the early Decca labels.

History: Pickering and Inglis, whose names appear below the label name, was a Glasgow-based publishing house founded in the mid-1890s, publishing material largely in support of the non-conformist evangelical church in Scotland; eventually, its subsidiary outlets and printing facilities spread to several major cities in England. The flagship Glasgow bookstore survived until the late 1990s. Label scan courtesy of collector Georg Richter of Germany; alternate colour combination label scan below courtesy of collector and musicologist Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K., who notes that these records were pressed by Decca, who may have also done the master recordings.
