DeForest Crosley
"Connaught"
1936
Deforest Crosley Limited,
Toranto, Canada

    The "Connaught" was Deforest Crosley's top of the line table model set for 1936.  It was actually manufactured by Rogers Majestic Limited of Toronto and shares the same chassis as the Rogers model "Ten-60" and the Majestic "Jolliette".  The information label attached to the inside of the radios cabinet identifies this model as the "Connaught" while the schematic for this set, found in the Radio Collage of Canada books, identifies this set as the "Connought".  Tuning on this radio is aided by a special 24 volt light bulb mounted on the dial that would stay lit but would dim as soon as a station is tuned in.  I purchased this radio from a Minnesota radio collector in the late 1980s.
