Clippings: 1918 Weymann Ad & Bruno Delivery Truck


I guess in 1918 it was quite the thing to have an actual delivery truck in New York City. This clipping is from an article about how Bruno (yes, the giant distributor and retail house at the time) picked up a new Ford to tote their banjo-ukes, guitars, violins, everything around.


And here's a Weymann full-page ad from the same year. Note that the style numbers are slightly different from their earlier instruments and also the nice little snapshot of one of their guitars -- Weymann guitars are extremely rare fare, and quite high quality, just like their banjos and mandolins.
