If you are interested in the history part related to the photo, you may read on:
I was interested in the word "Doncaster" , since it is reasonably local for me, it's one of the nearest towns where I (sometimes) live, locals call it "Donny". In case you don't know Donny, I leave a Link here.
Back to the title, Sold by C.H, PEAKE, I wondered where it is, if I have ever passed by the shop, but sadly I found this:
"C. H. PEAKE Limited.
The Companies Act, 1948.
(Members' Voluntary Winding-up.)
AT an Extraordinary General Meeting of the
Members of the above-named Company, duly convened
pursuant to the provisions of section 141 (2)
of the Companies Act, 1948. and held at the registered
office Georgian House, Princes Street, Doncaster, on
the 29th day of October, 1956. the following Special
Resolution was duly passed:√‚ó
" That the Company be wound up voluntarily and
that Lionel Gordon Frushard Waddington, F.S.A.A.,
of Georgian House, Princes Street. Doncaster, be
and hereby is appointed Liquidator of the Company."
(419) C. B. PEAKE. Chairman"
The photo was taken in Goddards in York, I guess, as a kid, you might know "Terry's Chocolate Orange" well regardless Noel Terry who collected georgian furniture, later donated to Fairfox house , this piano was one of his collections. Sadly, Terry's Chocolate factory closed in 2005, but I did see some look like Terry's Chocolate Orange in a shop window in York yesterday, not sure who made it..., maybe you can tell the difference if you are a chocolate orange fan,...Grin
