Plant of the Newly Organized
Apollo Piano Company, at DeKalb, Illinois

An impression of the Apollo Piano Company factory, circa 1919.

(From August 2, 1919, issue of The Music Trades)

An August, 1919, impression of the factory for the newly organized Apollo Piano Company, at DeKalb, Ill. In this cut, the factory has been enlarged greatly from the original construction started in 1904 for the Melville Clark Piano Company. The original "L" shaped building is somewhat in the background as compared to the new and similarly shaped building that fronts the older factory structure. The original power house is behind and adjacent to the original factory building, and is easily discerned by the tall smokestack (left of center) and plume of steam rising out of what is probably the original Corliss steam engine's exhaust pipe.
