Joseph Szigeti in Hungary - in the beginning of the 1900's

from With strings attached- Reminiscences and reflections, 2nd edition, enlarged, pages 35-36:

I was still surrounded by quaint personalities like one Schreier, who billed himself on the windows of the cafes where he appeared as “King of Harmonics,” this being a speciality that he exploited to great effect in fantasias depicting the twittering of birds and which invariably produced a considerable increase of nickels and silver coins on his collection plate.
