Sniffen Packets

With a name like Sniffen, it's got to smell good.

Colonial Piano

We just got given a piano. (By the way, Death Wish Piano Movers is awesome.)

It says it’s made by the Colonial Piano Company, of Boston, MA. This company is no longer in business, but they are listed in a 1911 directory of Boston Directors: Text not available
The Directory of Directors in the City of Boston and Vicinity

Their president, Mr. Bonney, is listed in the 1904 edition of Clark’s Boston Blue Book: Text not available

But I can’t seem to find a comprehensive history of the company. Either way, it suggests that our piano was made around the beginning of the 20th century. Neat! Now all we have to do is get it in tune.
