RECORDING BLANKS
This unusual category is for recording blanks which have either a generic label on which to write details, or no label at all, whereby a label could be typed or written and pasted on. All have been recorded on. There is no indication as to when or who made the recordings.

BRS.
The Recording Blanks are made by Byer Industries Pty Ltd, Melbourbne, Australia, and have BRS in large letters centrally, with a six-digit number.   The BAYER RECORDING BLANK label has a green background label on whcih to type (or write): SPEED, START, TITLE, RECORDIST, DATE. It was ‘Manufactured by Byer Industries Pty Ltd, Melbourne, Australia'. Note that the label could be typed, hence was then pasted over a recording blank (record), probably made by Byer. Note: Two numerals are typed in the ‘SPEED' area, however the digits vary greatly and they no doubt reflect the number of the recording. The speed is probably 78 rpm. Where or why these recordings were made I have no idea. Most of the discs have a light grey ‘fungus' which could be removed with washing in warm water, however it is not known is the fungus has damaged the groove over the years.
