The Way We Were

Forum threads from yesteryear...

I came across some old saved threads from the original forums (1999, 2000),
thought some of our long-time members might like to take a look back.

Warning these are fairly large files

http://www.pianoworld.com/forum_archive_021900.htm (Feb. 2000)

http://www.pianoworld.com/forum_archive082099.html Aug. 1999

http://www.pianoworld.com/forum_nov_99.htm (Nov. 1999)

http://www.pianoworld.com/forum_archive_122199.html (Dec. 1999)

Some day I hope to find some from 1997/1998. I'm sure I have them on an old floppy somewhere :-)

Hey, people were arguing about Baldwin v. Yamaha v. Kawai v. Mason and Hamlin and "How much is my antique piano worth?" back then. Apparently things never change. laugh
