1890s James Hough was originally a British importer of American cylinder phonographs.

He used the brand Edison Bell for machines and records which he began to manufacture at his own works in Peckham, London. In an industry dominated by American offshoots, Edison Bell flew the flag as a thoroughly British firm with fine, no-gimmick products which inspired brand loyalty among discerning buyers.
