110 Years Ago at the Victor Talking Machine Company:
The June 1909 Catalog Supplement
Original catalog courtesy of John R. Bolig
From various 1911 issues of The Talking Machine World:
Clockwise, from top: Frank C. Stanley, Henry Burr, Arthur Collins, Charles D’Almaine, Ada Jones, Byron G. Harlan, Fred Van Eps, Vess L. Ossman. Stanley died just a few months before this ad appeared, but most of his records remained in the catalog until U-S Phonograph’s end.
This ad contains the only photo we’ve seen of the elusive Joe Brown, who also recorded for several of the smaller disc companies (including International Record, as early as 1906).
