Rate this Entry
Saxworks has just released a restored, historic video showing the operations at the C.G. Conn factory in 1937. It is the only such video known to exist from Pre-WWII United States. You'll see processes for both woodwind and brass instruments. It's an educational and entertaining watch!

    The C.G. Conn factory in 1937 was 3/4 mile from what was then a vacant field, but which in 1946 would contain the post-war housing development that included the 4-room house (later expanded to 8 rooms) in which I grew up. When I was in high school and rode my bike to school, I passed the factory every day.
