Waters Conley Phonola 

To my knowledge, there is no connection between Pollock/Electrohome/Phonola and the US machines made under the 'Phonola' name by Conley and later Waters Conley.  My thanks to Ed Grzanowski, Jr.of Plymouth, Michigan for asking about these US machines and sending pictures of his upright machine.

From Antique Electric Waffle Irons 1900-1960 by William George:

"For years, the Conley Company had made windup record players for Sears.  When (Glen) Waters bought the company in 1939, it became the Waters-Conley Company and shortly after converted to making "Phonola" electronic phonographs."
