This 1890 photograph shows the front of a Toronto music store that was located on King Street, between Bay and Jordan streets. If we go window shopping, here's what we find in his display.
LEFT HAND WINDOW - (top to bottom) Violins and bows, a five-string banjo, an unidentified low brass instrument of some sort, a button accordion, a fan arrangement of flutes clarinets and maybe other woodwinds, a xylophone.
RIGHT HAND WINDOW - (top to bottom) Tambourines or hand drums, (upper right) a five-string banjo, (neck only visible) a terrific-looking guitar, violins and violas, (none with chin rests) a cornet of some description, another xylophone, a a second button accordion, and what might be a saxophone in a box.
My money's all spent...
