Whiteley

Home Page  Records British Dance Bands Sound Files Contact Me
Whiteley's were a department store in London (Queen's Road, Bayswater). In about 1912, they started stocking their own records, which were oversized (10") and pressed from Grammavox masters. There were about 150 pairs of titles in a catalogue series running from A-1. The records are not easy to find, and details of any not shown here would be greatly appreciated.
 

 

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.

Thanks to the following for providing extra details: Frank Andrews, Mike Atkins, Bill Dean-Myatt, Norman Field, Mike Jones, Richard Prout,
