Sold by Miller Bros. Ltd.

At the performance of Perk Up, pianist! today at the Haviland Club, Oliver and I sat beside the Heintzman piano in the back of the room (a piano only partially-working, and thus not the piano used for the performance). I took the opportunity to sketch the “Sold by Miller Bros Ltd.” label on the front:

Miller Bros Ltd. was a Charlottetown institution for decades; you’ll find more than 2,000 references to the company in The Guardian over the years, like this one, from 1915 that mentions their Heintzman business:
