Sub-subseries 2: Proofs for album covers
Album jackets from this era were frequently made of cardboard, with a glossy sheet affixed to the front (and sometimes the back), with the album title and artist, and usually an illustration. These are the glossy sheets, most for popular and folk music, but some for classical music. Two covers are printed on heavy-stock paper boards. George took the photos and in some cases may have designed the covers.
