Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Feb. 15, 1921.

Application filed .Tune 14, 1920. Serial No. 388,944.

citizen of the United tates, residing at New.

York, in the county of New York and State of New York, have invented new and useful Improvements in Albums, of which the following is a specification.

rlChis invention relates to improvements in albums for filing away phonograph records and its principal object is to produce a pocket for such an album which shall be capable of receiving either large or small diameter records and in either case displaying the title of the record through the openinin the face of the pocket.

ne embodiment of my invention is shown in the accompanying drawings consisting of one sh'eet, in which 2-- Figure 1 is a plan view lof my improved pocket showing the applied sub-pocket in dotted lines.

Fig. 2 lis a Vertical sectional view of the same.

i Like referencel characters refer 'to like parts in both views.

As at present manufactured phonograph albums are provided with pockets of a single uniform size; and if a ten inch record is put in a pocket meant for a twelve inch one, the title of the record which is stamped or attached I to the center` of the record is obscured by the record dropping below the aperture provided to show the title. My invention obviates this by applying a second Vand similar pocket to one interior wall of the larger pocket with the title aper? tures of both pockets in alinement.

Referring more particularly to the drawings 10 represents an ordinary pocket of a phonograph record album adapted to receive large size records and provided with an opening 11 for displaying the title of the record when the same is contained in the pocket. 12 represents a smaller pocket having a title opening and applied to one wall of the pocket 10 in such manner that the title displaying apertures register with each other as shown in dotted lines in Fig. 1.

It will be obvious from the above description that if it is desired to house a large record in the pocket, such record is slipped down at the free side of the applied pocket and the title may be read through the aperture'll as is usual; and that when a small record is to be accommodated the same will be placed in the small pocket and will be sustained by it with its title in registcrwith the opening 11.

While I have described what I deem to be the preferred embodiment of my invention, it is obvious that some of the details of the same may be varied without in any way departing from the spirit of the invention; and I therefore do not limit myself to the details of the construction herein set forth nor to anything less than the whole of my invention limited only by the appended claim.

Now having described my invention what 'I clairn as new and desire to secure by Letters-Patent is w In an album for phonograph records, a pocket comprising two side walls provided with an aperture for exposing the title of a record, and an inner pocket provided with an aperture for exposing the title of a record, said inner pocket being applied to one of the side walls of the first said pocket with the apertures of both pockets registering with each other.

In testimony whereof I have afiixed my signature,
