Charles Blasius & Sons piano factory photographs

About this collection

Charles Blasius & Sons began in Philadelphia in 1855. In 1887 they bought the trade name "Albrecht", which was one of the oldest piano makers in the United States. Blasius also made pianos under their own brand name, as well as "Ideal" and "Regent." Sometime between 1913 and 1918 they were bought by the Rice-Wuest Company, which continued making pianos until they went out of business at some unknown time. This collection shows interior and exterior views of the company's factory in Woodbury, New Jersey. Click here for a detailed description of the collection.
