A series of photographs were taken in 1916 of the manufacturing facilities of Steinway & Sons in New York City. They were produced as a set of stereopticon slides that were distributed to Steinway & Sons dealerships.

In June of 2005, Mr. Henry Z. Steinway, fifth president of Steinway & Sons and Mr. Roy F. Kehl, noted historian of the manufacturing history of Steinway & Sons, recorded their comments while viewing these photographs in Mr. Steinway's office at Steinway Hall on West 57th Street in Manhattan, New York.
