Read, Seen, Heard

“C. G. Conn Ltd., Elkhart, Indiana, world’s largest manufacturer of band and orchestra instruments. Takes seven eight-hour days to make and mount a set of oboe keys from 355 small castings and other bits of metal. This skilled craftsman has been working on Conn woodwinds since 1906.” Not sure of the date, but the postcard calls for a one-cent stamp, which means it pre-dates 1952.
