John C Murdoch
lachenal74693 posted a topic in General Concertina DiscussionI recently acquired a Bb/F 20-button Lachenal, serial No. 106253 (~1904?). This is 'badged' as having been manufactured for a dealer called John C Murdoch. I can't find anything about this dealer. Anyone have any information? Thank you. Roger Later - Ah! I should have done a search in these forums first! I have now found a lot of information including an obit. I didn't mention it, but the instrument is a 'Peerless' model. The references I found mention metal ends. Mine has wooden ends (mahogany, I think - the wood is certainly a typical reddish colour). Most of the references to Murdoch instruments seem to be to 30-button instruments, so presumably Murdochs were quite a large operation.
