There were several talking machines labelled Clarion. The first was an external horn gramophone made about 1907 by Hawthorne Manufacturing Company, Toronto. The name Clarion was also used for an internal horn cabinet machine made about 1917 and for an orthophonic-style cabinet machine advertised 10 years later in 1927.
