A Family's Eagle Drum

One of our readers, Bruce Wimer, wrote:


To whom it may concern,

I have enclosed some photos of a drum that was given to me by my grandfather. I have no idea the age of the drum and that is why I have contacted you. I have always been curious of its history.


The paper tag inside the drum states that it was made in  458 Dillwyn St. Philadelphia, Pa. by C & F Soistmann. I know my family is from there and were original settlers in the U.S.

Thank you,


Bruce Wimer
