Bremar Player Piano by the Waddington Company
By Jack M. Conway

Hi Group,  Niels Berkers said "It says 'Bremar' on the key cover,
and underneath 'manufactured at the Waddington Company'. "

The only listing in the "Pierce Piano Atlas, 10th Edition, is for
Waddington & Sons.  It says "Waddington & Sons, upright #16000 made
in England, Wm. Alfred Est. 1838."  There is no listing for Bremar.

I found another interesting thing when looking up these brands in the
"Presto Buyers' Guide, 1926."  The copy that I have is a reprint by
Frank Adams.  What I discovered is that it is missing pages 137 to 144.
This is the section that would list Bremar.

If any other MMD readers have a Presto Buyers' Guide 1926, would you
please check it and see if you have these missing pages.  I would very
much like to get copies of the missing pages.  If Frank Adams is out
there, were these pages missing at the time of reprinting or was a
signature left out of my copy at binding?
