PEEL (SYDNEY) Serial
of a kind! This is a small Sydney manufacturer that I haven’t
managed to find much about. The skill of their woodworking is
beyond doubt however. The tuning stability of this instrument
leaves a lot to be desired, and we may need to undertake some
drastic surgery and repin or fit a new pin block.
It possibly could be Francis Robert Peel, Music Seller and Publisher
c1890, to whom I found some National Library references: Peel’s
Music Warehouse, 5 Hunter Street, Sydney.
