Old Chickering Piano

Leave a comment

An old Chickering upright piano can be found in the library of William Faulkner’s home “Rowan Oak” in Oxford, Mississippi.  I had never heard of the company and during my research found the company was started in 1823 in Boston, Massachusetts.  The company was instrumental with development of a cast iron frame that has been used by all major manufacturers over the years.  In the 1850’s their pianos were the number one selling brand in America.  Chickering shuttered their doors in the 1980’s and sold their name to Baldwin Pianos.

I have always enjoyed photography, but with encouragement from family and friends over years I began to realize I really love it! This blog began in 2014 as a weekly themed blog with a group mainly located here in Florida. That group no longer exists so I decided to switch things up to a monthly themed blog. Thanks for following me over the years and if your new, I hope you enjoy my photos. 😊
