Belfast Gramaphone Sleeves

Back in the days of Gramaphones, vinyl records would not of had custom slip covers. Rather the sellers would use their own branded designs that would advertise their shop and other wares.

Not much else to say on these other than the companys no longer exist.

The Belfast Co-op society shut down in the 90’s and has been recently knocked down to make way for a new university building and B. Johnstone is now a new build cinema complex.

You often still find these needles in the drawers of Gramaphone players.

Not only did B. Johnston sell vinyl it seems he specialised in bicycles as well. £2 for a bike… gimme 2.

Always room to squeeze in a bit of advertising.
