    Historic photo inside Gulbrasen factory in 1916

    This picture shows Ruben Thorn on the front right side of the picture creating a soundboard in the Gulbransen piano factory in Chicago in 1916. It appears he is using a plane to taper the edges of the upright soundboard.  Though their first serial numbers began in 1915 it was founded in 1904 by Axel Gulbrasen.  Thanks to web vistor Chuck Seneck for the info and picture
