    The history of Steinway & Sons, one of the finest piano makers, presents us with a wonderful opportunity to explore many aspects of women's history in the United States and specifically the New York area, from the mid-Nineteenth century to the present.
Within the Steinway story we can trace the changing roles of women in the workplace and the limitations placed upon them in the corporate world.
Keep in mind that Steinway is representative of many industries in America.
The LaGuardia and Wagner Archives invites you to explore the women of Steinway & Sons through the following sampling of some of our documents and photographs from our Steinway & Sons collection.
