That's a pretty slick piano dolly...looks to be just the right size, load sits slightly forward of axle.

I wonder how many folks today would still want a piano...as opposed to just a keyboard in a corner with a cover. To me nothing beats a decent piano when the person sitting there knows how to play.

The wife and I use to do duets at the same seat on an upright a zillion years ago and have fun doing it...oh that's right, think that was while dating and the piano was hers. (What a guy won't do, eh?)

Then we had a better grade piano when we married, the kids basically frowned at it and passed it by, and she played solo and I plunked solo...then a year or so ago, she went and got herself a Mason Hamlin Grand and hey, it's all hers now, I just sit and listen, but she plays well and it is nice. :-)

Even the dog knows a good sounding piano! Whenever she plays the dog will come from 'wherever' and lay close. Sure, I'm sure he feels it...keyboard could never give you that!

Gee, you wouldn't want to hit a "sharp" object...

I'll bet that brick street nearly shook that piano apart. Ditto on the Mason & Hamlin grand.

He's probably sitting there afraid to go down that hill with the Model T brakes.

It might end in a crescendo...

I bought a player piano at a farm auction last weekend. I'm sure glad I had a better trailer than that to haul it home in. If I ever get through tinkering with my Model T's, I now have seven player pianos to restore. Ed

Ditch the guts and turn them into dry bars! :-)

A Pox on you Mark!! :-)
Eddy, You are in worse shape than me--I only have 5 to do!! And 3 are "mine" for my house! The other two were "rescues" to keep them from the dump (I now question that decision!)
I am now trying to make my living tuning pianos and repairing players; since I was laid off by the city 9 months ago, and no work around here, I'm going back to my original trade (was a tuner when I got married, then became a car restorer, than a museum curator & Performing Arts Center manager, and now back to piano tuning!
And Jay, you are very correct--modern folks use keyboards, but there's nothing like a real piano!
T'ake care,
David D.
