BON MARCHE

Bon Marche & The Bon Marche.

Released in Australia by Payne's Bon Marche Pty, Ltd, drapers of Bourke Street, Melbourne.. 
Manufacture: L053 is British Made. L175 is Made in America. 
Payne's Bon Marche stores were Australian owned drapers and haberdasheries. It is not listed in Miller [J] and thus the label contained no Australian recordings. (Not very parochial!). 

Miller [M] lists only the briefest of details and shows only the ‘British Made' label. He states that the catalog range for this label was 100-255, and that they were made in England by Imperial, with a mix of US and UK masters. 

I have no details at all on the ‘Made in America'; release, which I have no seen listed by anyone.
