The Whaley-Royce Piano Company was established in Ontario, Canada during the late 19th and early 20th Centuries. Their factory was located at 158 Young Street, Toronto. In addition to piano manufacturing, Whaley-Royce was very active in the sheet music industry during the turn-of-the-century era, often combining their sheet music with advertisements for their pianos. The firm enjoyed a reputation of building very high quality pianos, and they were distributed mainly throughout Canada. Whaley-Royce pianos are uncommon in the United States today.
