ALBUM FOB. HOLDING DISK RECORDS.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented May 1'77, 11910.
Application filed June 12, 1908. Serial No. 438,158.
To all whom it may concern: 1
Be it known that I, THOMAS WILSON WRIGHT, a subject of the King of England, and resldent of Leith, Scotland, have invented Improvements in Albums for Holding Disk Records, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to improvements in the envelo leaves of albums for holding the disk recor s of talking machines.
In the vaccompanying drawing, Figure 1 shows analbum for holding disk records of talking machines, constructed with my improved envelop leaves. Fig. 2 is an enlarged view of one of the leaves only, showing only one side thereof. Fig. 3 isa sectional view of the leaf as shown in Fig. 2, but somewhat enlarged with regard to its thickness. (For the sake of better illustration.)
Now, referring to the drawing, A represents the envelopleaf, which may be somewhat similar in shape to the ordinary envelop leaf atpresent in use, but in accordance with my improvements, the opening a of the envelop to receive the disk, is toward the inside or hinge B, Fig. 1, of the album instead of at the outside edge of the album as hitherto, in which latter case a clasp is usually necessary to prevent the disk falling out; whereas by inserting the disk at the hinge side of the envelop or leaf, the disks are retained in the album without such clas I prefer thateach leaf of the album e composed of two envelops A, as shown more particularly in Fig. 3, glued back to back, and also that each leaf be provided with the flaps a.,one at each side. Also that the envelop or pocket portions A have the openings a so that a person may ascertain what the particular title of therecord is before removing it from the envelop.
The corners of the envelops may be cloth bound to strengthen and prevent them readily cutting.
- A The flaps a permit of the records being more readily removed than would be the case if the end of the envelop werecarried right on, close up to the hinge. Further,
the said flapssomewhat act as filling pieces to allow for the thickness of the disks and so that the album when filled with the disks,
' Having fully described my invention, what I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is 1. In an album, a plurality of leaves, each leaf comprising two envelops fastened back to back, the faces of said envelops having a ertures therein, and slits nearthe bound e ges of said leaves, and flaps on said. envelops' adapted to lie flush with the outer surface of said leaves and ending in proximity to said slits.
2. In an album, a plurality of leaves, each leaf comprising two envelops fastened back to back, said envelops adapted to contain disk records and having slits near the bound edges thereof, the slits in the two envelops comprising one leaf being approximately oppositeone another.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto set' my hand in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
