We believe as many as 2,000 Mills Violanos might still exist! These "on location" archive photos are spots where violanos were sold to clients during the 1910-1930 era. We think these photos are most interesting as a "window" back in time. If you examine them carefully you will see what many commercial establishments actually looked like almost 100 years ago. It would appear that clients were mainly restaurants, candy stores, hotels, and bars.
Interestingly enough, we actually found one of these instruments still in its original location in Milwaukee about two years ago! So they are still out there, you find them, you can have them! In fact, we will make anyone that can locate documented original instruments a special discounted price on the restoration of the instrument---so start the hunt today!!!!
