Domestic: Portogram Record Players

This trader advert from April 1950 shows the range of wooden record players available from Portogram.  Basic advert that just shows the products and price.  Even now they look cheap veneered cabinets which are pretty ugly - no wonder they are now not around.  Where does the "Porto" bit come from - these are certainly not portable!

I do not see speakers anywhere so I guess these were designed to plug into amplifiers or radios with "gram" inputs.
