More on the piano

I pootled into Oxford today and was delighted to see this busker:

Nicholas Gill has modified his piano so he can lift it onto the piano wheels single handed. Not only that, but this particular piano is a lindeman, built in the 1960/70s and instead of being cast iron, it is made of tubular steel, making it particularly light weight. I now have my eyes open for a lindeman, should one turn up I will install it into the boat.

How cool!
I wish he was there when I used to live in Oxford...
There is a guy who does the same in NYC - he wheels his piano into the subway.

All the best,
