Music played a much more important part in people's lives before the days of television, cinema and radio. In the 19th century, many middle and upper class children learned to play an instrument such as the piano or the violin and took part in musical evenings at home. This musical instrument shop is advertising many different instruments - from flutes and organs to whistles and tambourines.
