- Photo was originally issued as a promotional photo in 1900 by Nordheimers' Limited - the sole Canadian Agents for Steinway Piano
- Photo was taken in 1900 in Los Angeles
- The back of the photo contains a quote written for the promotion by Paderewski, regarding how he liked the piano they provided him with more and more as his concert tour progressed

- Accompanying photo features a Steinway piano originally presented to Paderewski by William Steinway - the president of Steinway Pianos - and used during his 1892/93 concert tour.
