5 Concertinas Held By York Museum, U.k.

Recommended Posts

Some years ago I paid a visit to the YORK CASTLE MUSEUM at - wait for it -YORK, U.K.

There was a re-creation of a York street from the Victorian times, (1870 - 1901).

One of them was a music shop - BANK's MUSIC - and in the window was a concertina.


So, tonight, having nothing better to do, ( I know, poor old fellow, stuck in on a Saturday night!!) I thought I'd check to see if the museum's catalogue was accessible online.


Lo and behold, it is!, here : http://www.yorkmuseumstrust.org.uk/collections/


It seems they are holding 5 concertinas, 2 on display & 3 in store.
