A Book of Vintage Piano Pictures

The wording on this advert says, "Messers ERARD invite Connoisseurs to visit their Show Rooms and inspect their unrivalled Stock of PIANOFORTES, decorated in pure styles according to the various periods."

The old piano my family had when I was young was a Godfrey Piano. At the time I thought it was wonderful! (This picture predates my childhood.) 

This is an old Post Card. On the reverse is written, "Long before people had TV  or even electric light, the piano was the centrepiece of home entertainment. Usually the girls played the piano while the make members of the family sang or performed on the flute. One of the most popular ballads, 'Home Sweet home' sums up the Victorian view of the home as a retreat from the harsh realities outside."

This is an old Postcard advertising the Romhildt Piano. On the reverse is a brief note from the Sole Agents: 
Breitkopp & Hartel, 54 Gt. Marlborough St., London. W.
