Little Marvel Records from Woolworth's

Oh Dem Golden Slippers

A sixpenny Little Wonder Record from Woolworths in the 1920s

 

Little Marvel records like this one in a plain greaseproof sleeve sold in increasingly large numbers in Woolworth stores from 1921-28

Little Marvel records were sold in British Woolies stores between 1921 and 1928. Discs were double-sided with a topical track on Side A for which a halfpenny royalty was paid (indicated by a stamp) and a bought out title on Side B. Early records were 5½" in diameter, later ones grew to 6" allowing twenty seconds extra playing time.

Like Mimosa they had greaseproof-bag style unprinted sleeves and sold for sixpence. The discs were produced for Woolworths by the British subsidiary of Vocalion, who also sold larger, more expensive records in the UK under their own Brunswick label.

Little Marvel Gramophone Records like this one were produced for F. W. Woolworth by the Vocallion Gramophone Record Company between 1921 and 1928
