Gilman Mystery Piano - 01/24/13 07:53 PM

Got a call to tune an old upright and found an odd piano: a "Gilman & Co.-Boston" studio console, no serial # evident. Half plate, 85 keys, straight strung bass, double strings throughout entire tenor section. My Pierce Atlas only has an entry for this name ("Gilman - NY") and no information on this company, and I can't find any info on the web for this name. Can anyone shed some light on this old fellow's lineage? -Thanks!
