Westport records were sold by Curry's Ltd in their various cycle & electrical shops around the country.
Westports were actually just a pasted-over label, on old-stocks of Winner and Imperial. The label designs were the same for both of these, but the Winner paste-overs were dark red with black printing, while the Imperial ones were an orangy-red with black printing.
