Hi, Julian,

Well, as you can see, I know nothing  about this stuff.  

Yes, they are probably 78's, though, because  they seemed to be about the  
size of my more recent albums, I call  them LP's.  They may only be 10  
inches, but I'll check.   

I'll have to get into the storage box and get the information  you  
requested, but I will.  I appreciate your time and  help.  I've  
procrastinated for a 
long time, but they need to  better home.

Thank and I'll get back to you,

Hello Anne.  You describe  them as "LP's", but if they were from the 
1940's then  the're are unlikely  to be many in that format. Do you mean 
78s? Are  they in artwork sleeves or  paper ones? What speed is designated 
on  the label. If they are 78s I'm  surprised that many would be made of  
red vinyl. Could you let us have a  few artists' names, titles and  
labels, catalogue numbers etc? Also, are  they 10" or 12"  inch?
