We used to make things in this country #230, Mercury Records

Mercury Records was formed in 1945 in Chicago and soon became a major competitor in the recording industry. There is little info on the Canadian branch of the company aside from the info on the record sleeve above, head office in Toronto, factory in Newmarket. A clipping from the Aug 6 1949 Billboard magazine mentions that the factory was being set up...

The record above features a song by Ruth Wallis
