CROWN

Made in England by the Crystalate Gramophone Record Manufacturing Company Limited of Tunbridge Wells, Kent. 

Rust [R] notes that there were three ‘Crown' labels issued in the USA and UK. 
Longwell [L] shows two additional labels (with no details). Field [F] does not list any.

Unforntunately, Mr Rust does not always make it clear as what specific illustration his text refers to, so I note the following as only a presumption. The label was sold in F.W.Woolworth & Co. stores at 6 pence each between September 1935 and March 1937. As the (presumed) record indicates ‘Made in England', I presume these Woolworth stores are in Britain. Rust indicates that they were of excellent quality , and manufactured by the Crystalate Gramophone Record Manufacturing Company Limited of Tunbridge Wells, Kent. They featured many top-ranking British bands and popular artists of all kinds; some of the bands were listed under pseudonyms.
