Wilf Carter's records

Montgomery Ward

Montgomery Ward was a large retail company in the United States that sold thousands of items through its famous mail-order catalog. In the 1930s MW offered their own 78rpm records as part of their general catalog. MW did not manufacture the records it sold – they were recorded and pressed by Victor from Victor masters, assuring a high-quality product. The catalog numbers for MW records consist of the letter M followed by a four-digit number. These Montgomery Ward records are now quite rare.
