Burdett upright piano

With fly on keyboard (thrift store)
Burdett Oshawa Canada - upright piano, c. 1900 - no info on google on this company - there was a Burdett piano company in Chicago but it doesn't say if this was a branch plant. There were piano companies in many towns across Canada in the 19th Century - I'd imagine the cost of shipping them made local manufacturing more attractive. People had to make their own music, then record players and radios came along....
