Patent of 1862 : "WARDLE EASTLAND EVANS, Market-place, Great Portland-street, London, Improvements in harmoniums, pianofortes, organs, and other similar keyed instruments." The Engineer, Volume 20, 1865, p. 428

Patent of 1865 : "A.D. 1865, December 7 - N° 3149. EVANS, Wardle Eastland. — (Provisional protection only.) —  Improvements in harmoniums, pianofortes, organs, and other  similar keyed instruments. This invention consists in a method of transposing the keys of music as may be desired. A portable or shifting keyboard is applied above the ordinary one; it is  fitted in grooves or guides attached to the body of  the instrument. Beneath the duplicate key-board is fixed a series of stickers or depressing pins for the purpose of actuating the lower keys by the pressure on the upper series; these depressors are to be brought so far forwards as to escape contact with the elevated black keys, as the sliding key-hoard is moved or shifted.

EVANS & Co (*1906)(*1910)


(continuation)

The upper board may also be hinged at the back to enable it to be raised from the lower board when required. The stickers may be padded with india-rubber, or leather, or felt; they may be made in two parts, the lower to screw into the upper, so that the length may be accurately adjusted to suit the touch. By these arrangements the performer may transpose music by mechanical means into various keys. An index or representation of the under keys may be painted or otherwise applied behind the keys and on the body or front of the instrument, to denote the situation of the under board and to serve as a guide to the performer in the adjustment of the upper keys." Patents for Inventions: Abridgments of Specifications Relating to Paints ..., 1871, p. 464
