A Rare Okeh Ajax Race Record Advertisement 1924


At first glance one would think this is just an advertisement for Okeh Race Records because of the banner at the top. But once you see names like Helen Gross and the Choo Choo Jazzers, ( with a 17000 catalogue number) appear, you know you’ve stumbled upon a rare find. The George M. Wood  record store of Pittsburgh claimed to be a pioneer in dealing with race records, and sponsored this advertisement, found in the September 6, 1924 Pittsburgh Courier.
