For forty years he conducted "Lamb's Music Store" on Bank Row, adjacent to the Gazette and Courier Office, the site of which store is now included in the First National Bank and Trust Company building. He then removed to his own building on Federal street. He helped to manage, and played in many bands and orchestras in former years and was a finished player of many instruments. By his honesty and fair dealing he built up an extensive trade and was most successful in his business career. -- e.g. -- History of Greenfield 1900-1929 p1612 ⁋2] --
