Interesting article about Steinway, love the pictures!

Bet you didn't know they once made cars[/b] too (I didn't). Bottom of page 3 of this article.
Gives new meaning to the phrase Dad, can I have the keys?

This reminds me of M.P. Möller, once the largest pipe-organ company in the world, in business from 1875-1992.

From the internet:
In 1905, Möller joined with Robert Crawford to form the Crawford Automobile Co. About 1,500 Crawford touring cars were produced from 1905 to 1924. In 1922, Möller introduced a new car, the Dagmar (named after his wife), which came in a variety of body styles, including a four-passenger version called the Victoria Speedster. Less than a thousand Dagmars were manufactured before production ceased in 1927.
