Photo of a box of 78s taken by Eddy Rhead. Many 78s during this period had adverts for the shops that were selling them on the sleeve.
I would be very interested to hear from anyone who remembers Hime & Addison on John Dalton Street (est 1815).
The year is a guess.
Regal Zonophone Records was a British record label formed in 1932, through a merger of the Regal and Zonophone labels. This followed the merger of those labels' respective parent companies - the Columbia Graphophone Company and the Gramophone Company - to form EMI. At the merger, those records from the Regal Records catalogue were prefixed 'MR' and those from the Zonophone Records catalogue were prefixed 'T'] Record releases after the merger continued using only the 'MR' prefix.
Originally Regal Zonophone handled American releases from Okeh Records, Victor Records and Columbia Records, as well as offering home-grown recordings by artists such as Gracie Fields and George Formby.The label is also known for its releases of Salvation Army (particularly brass band) music.
