Dust off the player piano and dig out some old sheet music because we’re headed back to 1904 and iTunes is nowhere in sight. Enjoy the streets of the D complete with smiling workers hauling in the newest shipment to Whitney, Warner. Bonus points if a reader can tell us where this building stood and if it is still being enjoyed today by people or automobiles.
Take a look at the photograph entitled “Box Sets: 1904“:
Detroit circa 1904. “Whitney-Warner Publishing Co.” In the heyday of the parlor piano, sheet music was big business. Crates of the latest hits ready for shipment. 8×10 inch dry plate glass negative, Detroit Publishing Company.
