"Upright" (side by side)...but only if the relevant milk box (or similar
is full, or very close thereof!
Since 78's weigh about 1/2 lb. (227 grams) each, the bottom record in a
pile of 100 discs has 50 lb. (22.7 kg) of weight on it! In fact, one can
occasionally run across 78's which have reversed record numbers
(raised on the disc on top) permanently impressed in them!
