H J Ward Concertina On Ebay

... I was curious if anyone knows anything about H J Ward and sons?

Founded in 1848, they were a well-known Liverpool music shop and manufacturers of military musical instruments, indeed their trade mark (seen unclearly either side of their name on a bellows frame of this instrument) is an image of a military bass-drum player with the slogan "Beats the World". The only information I have about the 67, Dale St. address, at the moment, is that it is listed as a secondary one in my 1903 Directory.


They sold concertinas manufactured for them by Lachenal's.
