Hi there! A 202 is a wonderful little machine. I have one with the original and mostly intact album & can provide photos after today's classwork is over so sometime tomorrow I should have the dimensions. You'll need some bookbinder's supplies, and decals which I would have made by Gregg Cline of phono decal.com. Honestly they're not great albums to store records in but they are wonderful.

The late (+) Graham Barber put a descriptive on his website making a Decca album similar to yours! Graham-o-phones.
The website has been closed, but someone in the forum may have saved it...

Sorry, but this one is only ten and a quarter inches wide, and is for the 201. It will fall through the side brackets of a 202. The one needed for a 202 is ten and three quarters wide.
