Also called Baker Selhurst or Baker's Selhurst (1930). Their telegraphic name was "Fydelitone".

There might be a connection to Baker Reproducers Ltd., Bensham Manor Road Passage, Thornton Heath, Surrey (in 1971: 45 years speaker driver manufacture - that translates to a founding date of 1926; dissolved 1980) and/or to the later Baker Loudspeaker Limited at 337 White Horse Rd., Croydon which was registered in 1972 and most likely is the same company as Baker Reproducers Ltd.: the same model Auditorium speaker is known for both, and the addresses are similar (Bensham Manor Rd. ends in Whitehorse Rd.)
