Some stickers and stamps from ancient 78rpm record shops, found on records and sleeves…
Those look neat. I like the Casa America Sociedad Anonima (that’s intriguing) and the one that tells Mexicans to be patriotic and buy from a Mexican owned shop!
Yes, I love that sticker too. Thanks for checking them out. Not all shops had stickers, and most get rubbed off – it’s the odd record that still has one intact. Digging for 78s in L.A. you come across the sticker for the shop on North Main St. all the time. They must have done a brisk business. It’s a great graphic.
great stuff! a year or so ago, i had a few greek records arrive broken, but i kept the label areas for little stickers just like these…
These are totally beautiful– the fonts! They seem really tactile.
Thank you – glad you enjoy them. At some point I’ll whip up a graphic gallery of import stickers & stamps which were also often affixed to 78s…
That would be fabulous. I can’t wait to see it.
What a nice collection. This is is all new to me.
