Old Advertising: Gramophone Needle Tins (41)

Gramophone Needle Tins have the advantage of being smaller and so more easily displayed than the larger sweet, biscuit and cake tins in my collection. The tins are colourful and attractively designed with the instructions "Use Each Needle Once Only" on the paper liners, although as can be seen below more durable needles were also manufactured. You will also note that some manufacturers made rather crude attempts at imitating the well-known "His Masters Voice" brand!
