Rebuilding Squire & Longson Cremona Player Piano
By Tony Brooks

-- non-subscriber, please reply to sender and MMD --

Hi,  I am about to attempt my first restoration, a "Squire & Longson,
Cremona Player Piano" upright, ca. mid-1920's.

Can anyone help with the acquisition of a tubing diagram or (Heaven
be praised) a service manual?

Ever hopeful,
