Auction lot - Wheatstone & Co specially commissioned concertina with Jeffries fingering and interesting ICA provenance


Recommended Posts

Just a little postscript  - I've recently discovered that James A Travers of Bridgewater (or Bridgwater for Wolf) Somerset, the concertina dealer mentioned, died in Oct-Dec 1952 in the Taunton District aged 62. That has taken me close on 20 years to discover. I knew it was sometime around then as the ICA had just formed when he died. Info via Free BMD

I don't know why, but discovery of a person's first name seems to make them more real to me. Here he is circa 1950 :-

If, as I've already suggested, this one was indeed originally made as an Anglo then that row would have consisted of unisonoric bass notes.

Somerset people have always been a bit free about their spellings Wolf
