The Keen-o-Phone company of Philadelphia, founded by Morris Keen, began manufacture in 1911 of a horn-in-lid type machine with mechanical feed.
The Victrola type machine depicted below, whose model designation is not known, would have been issued sometime after the Victor needle-in-the-groove patents expired in 1912. Its simple, open design indicates that it would have been an inexpensive offering.
Keen-o-Phone ceased production in 1914. Judging from where surving examples have turned up, close to the Philadelphia area, its distribution must have been predominantly local.
