Britannic

Annotation: 

"Britannic records date from about 1910 and there appear to be two distinct styles, as shown. Neither show any maker's name but the first one does say "British Made"; the other proudly proclaims "British Made Throughout". The first style shown (right) uses masters from "Bell" (and is an oversized 10" disc) pressed by Edison Bell; other matrix sources, such as Beka, American Record Company (ARC), were also used, and were the standard 10" discs. Some (at least) of the non-Edison Bell records were made by The Disc Record Company; these have "MADE IN ENGLAND" embossed into the record just outside of the label."
