A few years ago I acquired a very beat up piano from the 108 Elementary School.
My wife and I had it tuned and had the cabinetry refinished. Although it has a few flaws, it has turned out to be a beautiful piece of furniture and a grand old instrument, as well.
We would like to know something of its history. Where did it come from? How did it come to live at the 108 elementary?
Our piano was built in 1892. It is a stand up grand Krell Piano with Cincinnati — New York inscribed on the front.
Under the lid is inscribed, “World Columbia exposition in commemoration of the 400th anniversary of the landing of Columbus.”
If you have any idea or leads to this archaic piano’s history please call me at 250-392-3492.
