|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
