A very scarce label dating from about 1909, this was a 10" record which was pressed from Edison Bell's "Bell Disc" masters.
Catalogue numbers were in A-1  and B-1 series. Not enough records have been found to ascertain if this was actually one series with differnt prefixes depending on the type of music.
It is not certain who these records were made for, but possibly The Premier Talking Macine Stores in Vicarage Lane, Stratford (London?).
As with other Edison Bell "clones" of this period, they are so scarce one wonders what was actually going on!


Thanks to Bill Dean-Myatt for the label scan.

 

Please e-mail me if you can help me fill in the gaps in any of these series.

My thanks to Frank Andrews and Bill Dean-Myatt for starting off this listing.
