wes williams Posted October 28, 2021 Share Posted October 28, 2021 I've recently been going through Randy Merris's archive and came across a couple of things that might be of interest. If you look at the Lachenal Pricelists on concertina.com, item 4 on the date attribution list shows the telephone exchange going from Museum to Holborn, although no date of the change is given. We can now narrow that down to between July 1928 and November 1929, as shown from the receipts below. July 1928 Receipt November 1929 Receipt I only know of one other price list which is circa 1912 and comes from Neil Wayne's Concertina Museum site (where 3 pages are shown). But you can download the full pricelist here. If anybody knows of any other Lachenal price lists, I'd love to hear about them. The other thing is the introduction of the 'New Model'. Stephen Chamber's Lachenal Part 2 article has 28320:New Model, probably made about 1888 (CMC 106) . The database has 25521 as the earliest recorded New Model English. This would date to 1883/4 so perhaps this model was introduced to mark the 10th anniversary of the foundation of Lachenal & Co? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
