An very rare label, only in production for 3 or 4 months during late summer 1908. It was made by F.M. Russell & Co Ltd, od The Junction Works, Willesden, London. There were only eighteen 10" and fifteen 12" discs altogether and few people have seen them since ! The 10" discs had an A-prefixed catalogue number, and the 12" ones a B-series.

 

This is a first attempt at a listing. Please e-mail me if you can help me fill in the gaps in any of these series.

My thanks to Frank Andrews and Norman Field in providing a start to this listing.
Thanks also to: Bill Dean-Myatt
