Mark was renowned for his craftsmanship, musical knowledge and acute sense of sound, all skills vital in the creation of violins. The majority of his descendants have continued this tradition by becoming involved with music or the stage and have been known to reunite at the museum for music recitals like the one pictured here in 1958.
