LACHENAL & Co.

48 Button Unisonic English Concertina.

 

This Concertina was made circa 1884 by Lachenal & Co, London whose label is displayed behind the end fretting. The backs of the Reed Plates have the standard Lachenal Reed Identification Paper Disks.

The Maker’s reference number ‘42194’ is marked internally on all sections.

 

There is a label on one end which would appear to be the name of the original retailer 'C.F. HOCKING, DEVONPORT' which is a district of Plymouth in Devon, UK.

 

The Plymouth business house of Messrs C F Hocking, music and musical instrument sellers and dealers, and pianoforte manufacturers, was situated in Fore Street, Devonport. Their workshop was in Chapel Street.

It was founded in 1881 by Mr Charles Frederick Hocking (1861-1947).

Mr Hocking’s younger brother, Mr Ernest Edwin Hocking, may have played a part in the business as both of them were quoted as professors of music in 1881 and he later became an employed piano tuner.

By 1935 the business had become just specialist pianoforte dealers so had presumably given up both the selling of other musical instruments and of manufacturing pianos.

Mr Charles Frederick Hocking retired from the business in 1939 and died in 1947.

Their premises in Fore Street were destroyed in the air raids of April 1941 and that was, it would seem, the end of the business.
