Description:J. T. Burke's was a Cycle and 'Gramophone Agent, with a shop at 67 Higherland, Newcastle-under-Lyme.

A shop selling cycle's and music may seem like a strange combination but as the number of bicycle sales went down in the winter J T Burke needed another source of income.
The site later became a filling station for motor vehicles.

The record itself was produced by 'Winner Records' which were made from 1912 onwards by Edison Bell record works in London.
