This old 78 vinyl record was made by the Sav-Way Industries of Detroit, Michigan. The company produced colorful picture records for a very short period, from May of 1946 to August of 1947. This 10" record is numbered R744. On one side is Flat River, Missouri written by Grace Shannon and it features a young woman being greeted by a young man as she steps of a bus in Flat River. It is performed by Judy and Jen whose picture inset is within the larger picture. On the other side is Don’t Tetch It with the image of an aspiring young boy trying to reach daddy’s hat hanging above the mantle. The picture inset is of Nancy Lee and the Hilltoppers who perform this song. Although these records were great to look at, they were also played. This does not have a jacket.
This one has good color and shows well to display. It has some scuffs and scratches especially when held in angled light and some might cause distortion when played. It looks like there are several soiled places as shown in the pictures but they appear to be under the surface. It has no chips or cracks. The crack that is shown in the pictures does not reach into the grooved area. Overall the record is in nice condition, especially for displaying.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
