1937 Advert

I know very little about Lyre Brand other than I have seen an advertisement from a Perth newspaper dating from sometime very close to 1900 for Banjo Mandolins and the 1937 advert from Drouyn and Drouyn, Brisbane for Ukuleles that includes Lyre Brand Ukuleles. This advert is interesting because it lists "not so well finished model 14/6" (what we today would call "B Stock") This pretty much proves the Ukuleles were made in Australia, and suggests that Drouyn and Drouyn may be the firm behind them?

The Advert s also interesting because it lists two other probably Australian Ukulele brands, Kamola as a budget brand and Harola as a quality brand.
