Glamour Plus Labour: Clairtone in Nova Scotia

In partnership with the Museum of Industry, we will be hosting this exhibit for the summer of 2017.

July 17 - September 3 2017

Clairtone Sound Corporation, a Toronto based stereo manufacturer, opened a large factory in Stellarton in 1966. At that time, Clairtone stereos were the latest trend in home entertainment. The company quickly became popular for its bold marketing style and innovative and quality designs before it closed in 1972.                                                                                                         

The exhibit showcases Clairtone products including the company's breakthrough stereo: Project G with its signature sound globes, as well as other G series units, floor model cabinet stereos and colour televisions. It also draws on the memories and memorabilia of former Clairtone workers.
