An Illustrated Cylinderography of Indestructible Cylinders

Last updated: April 10, 2008

This cylinderography is arranged by catalog number, with details drawn from the copies shown. Indestructible was notorious for mislabeling many of its cylinders with the wrong artists; therefore, the correct identities are shown in brackets. No recording dates are known for any of the cylinders.

There is a good chance that Irving or Jack Kaufman may appear on other mislabeled cylinders, but none have surfaced to this writing. If you have any additional information not listed here, please feel free to email.

All cylinder images from the Ryan Barna Collection. Use with permission.
