Last Piano Store on Piano Row in Philadelphia

In Philadelphia, Chestnut Street was the place to go if you wanted a fine keyboard. Before the piano craze peaked in the 1930s, there were 13 stores selling uprights and grands between Sixth and 23rd Streets. The Great Depression did in many of the vendors. The rest flickered out. Today, just a single dealer remains, Jacobs Music, between 17th and 18th Streets. The above is from Inga Saffron's column in today's Philadelphia Inquirer, at p. H15.
