Notes

This is a very strange record. The labels on both sides are identical, hence why both images are essentially identical. Which songs appear on which side cannot be determined without playing the record, hence the title "Puzzle Record".

From Berliner Records, History of Recorded Sound in Canada by Steven C. Barr: "In late 1909, Berliner introduced the first of their Canada-only issues since Victor masters had replaced the early Montreal-recorded sides. These were, however, not recorded in Montreal but were European (French) and English recordings which the firm felt would appeal to Canadian talking machine owners. Several series were introduced: ...with the 121000 series (which included but one record, the "puzzle record") added shortly thereafter...."

Label reads:
God Bless the Prince of Wales (solo and chorus)
Hearts of Oak (solo and chorus)
Coronation March (Black Diamonds Band)
The British Grenadiers (Black Diamonds Band)
God Save the King (Solo and Chorus)
Rule Britannia (Solo and Chorus)
