Sunday Stills - History

This should be fun - can be anything over 60 years old, people, places or things, or even events replicating over 60 years old…

I don't have actual dates on these, but as they belonged to my great grandfather, who I don't remember ever meeting, I think they count for history. According to my father...
As I remember it my grandfather, Edward, got the piano when I was about eight years old. He only played by ear. He sang with the Shrine "Chanters" that did concerts for various groups, I guess. I assume that he got the guitar at about the same period. The piano, then, would be about 63 years old.





Now my beloved piano.



I feel like this vintage Kay Acoustic Archtop guitar belongs more to the piano than me. In my own little fantasy world, they are old friends and were glad to be reunited here. Some day I'll learn to play it and claim it as a friend of mine as well.





I like the lines upon lines upon lines...all to make a joyful noise.

For more historical Sunday Stills...
