August Friedrich Burchard had a shop in St.-Petersburg, he also was known as businessman, engineer and inventor. The advertisement about gramophone records, recorded and printed by his order, was published in the Grammofonnij Mir (The Gramophone World) magazine (December 5, 1911, № 22-23, p. 25). Currently it is not known on which plant the records were pressed, supposenly it is «Metropol Record» that used to take such kinds of orders. The beginning did not have further development, no more «Salon Record» were evere issued. Currently, «Salon Record» records are extreme collection rarity. They have “grand” format and bright labels with August Burchard’s trademark that depicts a special needle that looks like a pen point. On «Salon Record» records were featured famous St.-Petersburg singers M.Michailova, N.Bolshakov, A.Bragin, M.A.Emskaya and etc.
