Peter Pan Records - Snow White 78/45 rpm

From late 1940s to 1970s, Peter Pan Records was a children's music label. Manufactured by Synthetic Plastics Co. of Newark, New Jersey. Copyrighted James & Jonathan Co. of Kenosha, Wisconsin.

In 1950, they released a (non-Disney) musical story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Narrated by Jack Arthur with the Peter Pan Chorus and Orchestra. It would be re-issued an unbelievable number of times, so many that we've only scratched the surface below. It came in 10" discs, 7" discs, 78 rpm, 45 rpm, and later editions would also include a read-along 24-page book.
