On the label it says
Brooklyn Piano Co
69 UNION ST
The serial number of it is 10162,
if anyone knows about this piano, any info, please let me know
ps i can provide photos
1911 #14,100 Brooklyn Piano Co. upright dated by the number of its Schwander action of the same type which Schwander made in 1895, type SLHR, with the set-off screw engaging on a rolling roller. Keys made by Wicking & Chivers.
If you can inspect the action, and it is by Schwander, the number should tell me its date. All I can say so far is that it is probably before 1911. Teague was the retailer...
In 1899, William Teague was at 69 Union Street, Ryde, Isle of Wight.
Photos would be interesting if you can email them to me.
I am sorry I know very little about Teague, but I will have a look through the 1900s lists. I don't think the name Brooklyn has any real significance.
If you can post photos to show what the whole piano looks like, I may be able to tell you more.
