The Reliance And Artophone Portable Phonographs 1929

Tull and Gibbs, the largest home furnishing and music store in Spokane, Washington set their hopes in generating Summer phonograph business, with an advertisement that they placed in The Spokesman Review on June 9, 1929. They were offering both the Reliance and Artophone portable phonographs at a discounted price. I am not certain of the origins of the Reliance, but there is a notation of Victor manufacturing such a model. The Artophone, however dates back to 1916, and was manufactured in St. Louis, by The Artophone Company. Again, there is no other data to rely on to confirm that this portable phonograph was not manufactured by the same company.
