This photograph is said to have been taken in Balliol College Oxford in 1920, when the machine would have been brand new.

Great photo. It's interesting to see a Victor Flower horn used with the School Model. Is that the way it was sold in England? Jerry Blais

The 23.5 inch diameter metal Morning Glory horn was the standard issue for this model in the UK.

the HMV school model reminds me a bit of the table that came with my 1924 Linguaphone phonograph

i know!..sigh! it's a mess all round and the wheels are wrong but the original ones had rusted away leaving only the axel and 6 spokes
but a shopping dolly cart's wheels made it roll once again

Thanks (belatedly) for the picture! I have one of these machines. It's a pity they weren't supplied with oak horns as the Victor version was.

I have a Victor model I bought from Rafael, that looks like new, including a very nice oak horn. Apart from the different horns, the HMV looks identical. The motors are not, there are subtle differences that (unfortunately) I discovered when I tried to fit a HMV motor on another Victor machine: the motorbase-to-spindle heights don't match, screwing up the fitting of the turntable and the break, and the speed indicators, like the motor cars, swing in opposite directions F-S in one and S-F on the other ...

About a year or so ago, a member posted an HMV School model for sale. Does anyone have the link? It had a large green morning glory horn.
