Graham & Young upright

Post by BadgerLeanne » 29 Jun 2020, 12:15

Hello, I’ve just acquired a piano and I’m looking for more info on the history as the web has nothing, not even when searching the maker.
The inlay says it’s Graham & Young Makers in Newcastle Upon Tyne.
I’m unsure how to post a photo so help with that appreciated .
Thanks

Originally Graham & Adam, they became Graham & Young in the first few years of the 1900s, and were Ltd. in the twenties. This seems to place your piano in the first quarter of the 1900s, so have a look at my Edwardian page...

I am surprised that they describe themselves as "makers", I understood that they were only retailers. You can email photos to me to post for you, and these should show what the whole piano looks like.

If you find old references or links on this site to pianogen.org, they should refer to pianohistory.info
