(This is a single-sided disc, with nothing but a copyright/patent label on the reverse side. The label was placed over the spindle hole, and so I’ve made my best guess as to the missing letters in the text.)
(One of many old 78s in my collection. Dates are approximated as best as possible based on the labels and what information I can find on the ‘net. The sound quality on these is quite variable. I’ve cleaned the worst of the pops and skips as best as I can, but these won’t be anywhere near modern fidelity. Enjoy them for what they are.)
