The Crescent Talking Machine Company


The Crescent Talking Machine Company of New York City existed primarily from 1916 to 1920, and the phonographs were sold primarily in New York State, with some distribution extending into Pennsylvania. There were a line of 8 inch records manufactured by the company under the Crescent name, most likely to compliment the phonograph line. The two ads below were from the  Wallace Company of Schenectady, New York, posted between 1920 and 1922, in the Schenectady Gazette.
