Miss Victor

This is the original news article that went with the Miss Victor banner of the previous photo. Notice that rather large dog is next to the RE-45 Electrola. Miss Victor is wearing a banner. I am not sure if the dog was referred to as Nipper at this point. I think that happened after the merger with RCA. Here he is just called the "Victor pup". The Oliver Ditson Company sold drums and sheet music.

The link below gives more info. on the RE-45:

Note that the date of the article is the first day of the major 1929 stock market crash that hit dead bottom a few days later (Oct. 29, I think).

Anyone who has additional information about this 'event', please comment.

(Note: the RE-45 is a lowboy. It looks tall here because it appears to be resting on a sort of pedestal. )
