Fred Figner's settled in Rio de Janeiro, where he started to operate his
Casa Edison in 1902, recording and selling records that were pressed in
Germany. He had one brother who was his business partner in São Paulo.
Thanks, Carlos, for this information. I thought his brother's name was
Jacob - is that the same as Gustavo?
I wonder if the "Edison" connection was official.
Why would a coin-token say, "Case Edison"? (instead of Casa Edison)
