Mc Lagan Furniture

The picture of the metal Tag attached, which you posted, led me to Google the Mc Lagan History. They owned a massive furniture factory in Stratford, ON. And I mean massive. They manufactured many different kinds and styles of furniture. They also farmed out their services, and manufactured Radio Cabinets for radio manufacturers. One of those manufacturers was Rogers Majestic, who was also the maker of your of your DeForest Crosley. I have a mid thirties De Forest Crosley for which Mc Lagan manufactured the cabinet.

It is also of interest to note that Mc Lagan also built their own radios under the brand-name of Mc Lagan-Erla or just Erla. And not to be outdone by the big guys, they manufactured a massive line of Phonograhs they called The Phonothertic. They had their finger in the whole pie.

Post for us a picture of your Radio, front and rear. On one of the cross bars on your radio there should/could be a rubber stamped model name. The chassis on my set also has attached a metal plate which shows a model number. In my case that would be 6D531. Anyway your post has led me to knowmore about my own set.
