The full story of The Bell Piano & Organ Company Limited, Guelph, Ontario, and its involvement in the piano and phonograph trade from its warerooms at 146 Yonge Street, Toronto, is told in an article published in Antique Phonograph News, available on line at

Bell manufactured several models of upright and console phonographs beginning in the early 1920s which they labelled "Bellolian". About 1925 they made a "new style" phonograph labelled either "Bell Euphonic" or "Bellphonic".

This Bell Euphonic is in the collection of the Guelph Civic Museum, accession number 1985.49.1. Photographs are courtesy of Guelph Museums. The photograph of the label showing the serial number, 1966, is courtesy of Bill Pratt.

Bell must have been struggling with an identity for their new style phonograph because they also produced an identical model which they named a Bellphonic. The only difference seems to be the logo and the gold-plated, or -painted, hardware on the two front cabinet doors. Photographs supplied by Norman Brooks.
