There are hundreds of homes in and around
this city that have been waiting the coming
of the Brambach Baby Grand. Now it is here
?the only grand piano that is small enough to
fit the space of an upright. This Brambach
is a revolutionist?it will displace many an
upright. While it takes up no more space
than an upright, it produces the true grand
tone in all its fullness and purity.
Small though It is, the Brambach is not
inconspicuous. Every visitor in this store
speaks of its elegance of form and of the at
tractive case finish?either a high polish or a
dull, velvety surface. ?
Stop in and try it, and take home with you
a paper pattern showing its exact size.
