Newman Brothers

The Newman Brothers Piano & Organ Company was established in 1880 in Chicago, with their factories located at 806 Dix Street. In 1892, the company was incorporated by L.M. Newman as President, and A.B. Newman as Vice President. Newman Brothers were known for building very expensive, elaborate pianos & organs, and they were very successful. Like most makers, Newman Brothers phased out their organ building in the first decade of the 20th Century, putting all of their emphasis in piano manufacturing. There is no mention of Newman Brothers after about 1930, indicating that the firm went out of business with the Great Depression.
