This might be slightly of topic, but I'm hopeing someone might know something about my great, great, great, grandfather Charles Begg.
Charles Begg opened up shop in Aberdeen in 1849 and was said to be producing several hundred piano's a year before he emigrated to New Zealand in 1861.
I have history of his work in New Zealand & some photos, but I know nothing about his shop in aberdeen, what was it called? what piano's did he make? Any photo's etc.
If anyone could point me in the right direction to getting this information or have any information, It would be much appreciated, Thank you for your time.
I’ve just listed this Charles Begg piano on Ebay if you’re interested ?
