Exact name for canadian company Deforest Crosley

The exact name of that company would be Deforest Crosley Limited.

Radios chassis were built by Rogers-Majestic Corporation. Cabinets were often built by Strathroy Furniture Corp. Limited, also in Ontario.

As of today we have updated the company information up until the merger with Rogers-Majestic.

The images shown here only apply to the situation after the merger. It is unclear if the DeForest Radio Corp. Ltd. disappeared in favour of DeForest Crosley Ltd., or if both companies continued to exist side-by-side for some time.

See the manufacturer entry for more information.

Any updates concering the time past 1934 are welcome.
