Sherman Clay & Co. stores were opened in San Jose, Portland and Spokane in 1906.

Given the "Decca" design and the phone number, this has to be from 1942-55.

The morning after a Blind Faith concert Eric Clapton asked where we could walk to look at guitars. Myself and a RS writer suggested that a block from the Benson was a small but, by Portland standards, decent collection. So we three walked to Sherman and Clay.

The logo is impressed on a facsimile of a "master". A "master" was a piece of vinyl in roughly the same shape as what you see in this photo. When records were "pressed", they were pressed into this master with a hot metal plate that contained the tiny impressions necessary to make a phonograph record. It's amazing how many music fans today don't even recognize the term, "phonograph record". OK, there's my latest submission from an aging disc jockey who remembers facts from far too many years ago.
