Ulman, William F. (& Jacob)

William F. Ulman was a very small-scale piano maker in Boston during the post Civil War era.  His factory is listed at #9 LaGrange Way, Boston in about 1875.  Archives suggest that W. F. Ulman was building pianos in Boston as early as the 1860s, but there is very little information recorded about him or his firm.  By 1877 the firm was controlled by W. F. Ulman’s son, Jacob Ulman, with some pianos being manufactured under the label of “Jacob Ulman, Boston”.  There is no mention of the firm after about 1880.
