Organbuilding Along the Erie and Chenango Canals

9781466363243: Organbuilding Along the Erie and Chenango Canals

By 1850, Alvinza Andrews had become the proprietor of the sixth-largest organbuilding establishment in the United States. Shipping completed instruments on the New York canal system, and using local materials and personnel, he dramatically undercut his Boston and New York competition. To increase efficiency further, Andrews relocated the firm from Waterville, New York, to downtown Utica in 1852, literally along the southern bank of the Erie Canal.
