ODEON

International Talking Machine Co.m.b.H. (Germany). 

The label is named after one of the most famous theatres in Paris, and was created in Paris and Berlin by F.M.Prescott. In Weissensee, near Berlin, the world's first double-sided records were produced, under the international trademark, Odeon.  There was also an American subsidiary, which produced a 10¾ disc on blue wax, and a most distinctive label of a Red Indian chief.  
In 1910, the label became part of the Carl Lindsrom empire. In 1926 the label was bought by Columbia, (along with Okeh). This resulted in the label design as shown in L199. Artists on the later Am,erican labels included Miff Mole, Louis Armstrong, Frankie Trumbauer, Duke Ellington.
