It made it ok; I don't have anything to contribute, but it did make me think that often incidental stuff, such as varieties of label, matrix nos, which take was used, who had the rights [or which co's issued stuff w/o rights], album varieties over time --  incidental stuff such as that, is as interesting and absorbing as the music.  I had never thought of storage albums like that.  Astorage album is a storage album is a storage album.  There's something for someone to work up for a ARSC presentation....

Dunno if this ever made it to the forum, never showed in my inbox, no responses at all, which even in the post-Facebook era for 78-L seems kinda strange, so I send again, just in case….


Has anybody made any kind of study of the various styles/designs/constructions and history of Victor’s empty storage albums?  I have specimens of at least four different styles of them, and had no idea where they fell chronologically amongst each other until yesterday when I was given a batch of Victors & Bluebirds that all seem to be 1932-33 vintage and all in the same style of Victor-made album.  They have been in the same family since they were new, so there's been no flea market shuffling, hence the assumption of the right age.  I was given a batch of these same albums years ago and they had everything from batwings to 10" LPs in them.  This most recent acquisition gives me some idea about this design.  I'm not the most talented Google searcher, so all I've found is e-bay stuff.  Any websites that help decipher the field?
