Aren't all old phonographs called Victrolas?
ANSWER: No. "Victrola" was originally a unique brand-name of products from the Victor Talking Machine Company from 1901-1929. Hundreds of other phonograph companies were around throughout the 20th Century, with different brand names such as Columbia, Edison, Sonora, etc. RCA bought-out the Victor Talking Machine Company in 1929, which created the "RCA VICTOR" brand; they continued to use the "Victrola" name frequently on their products from 1929-1976. Even now, there are legitimate manufacturers who market modern portable phonographs with the "Victrola" name. This website only covers the 1901-1929 products from The Victor Talking Machine Co. We have no information on any RCA or RCA-VICTOR machines. See the GETTING STARTED section for more information
