They actually changed the caption.  Now it doesn’t mention what kind of records they are at all!!!

Thanks for pointing this out, Ron! We're updating the caption now. Appreciate you taking the time to write.

This caption is wrong: "Just a bit of the BPL’s 200,000 piece vinyl collection". Those records in the photo are SHELLAC [breakable] 78's from the 30's and 40's; not vinyl, which was popular in the 50's through the 90's and is still being made today. I don't know who wrote the caption, but the people digitizing these records should know the difference between shellac and vinyl! Do you need an editor??
