This is the Family Piano. It dates from around 1898. You can't read it, but on the cover that goes over the keys it says:Whitney, Chicago. The piano has been mechanically fully restored. There is a bit of work that needs to be done on some of the woodwork, and the piano bench is a mess. But it sounds very good now. If you look at the lower left hand leg, you can see some damage that was done in a fire just about in the 1920 time range. The piano was restrung at about the same time, and below, you can see a concert ticket that was being used as a shim under the keyboard by the piano tech who did the work at the time.
The work on the piano was done by a local piano tech
by the name of James Connolly.
