My front porch in Old Town Eureka is known as The Sunny Side. Southern exposure, protected from the wind, it is an ideal place to sit and play old timey tunes and watch the parade go by.

1951 Kohler & Chase Piano

I just had it delivered today. I bought it in February but ended up in the hospital until March with an incarcerated hernia. Kohler & Chase was San Francisco's first music store, in business from 1850 til 1958, and was the town we lived in when I was born in 1951. http://www.sfmuseum.org/hist/kandc.html

Keep an eye on the local Craigslist Free classifieds. I see free pianos and organs listed there fairly often.

Here's one I just found. A couple dead keys, it says, but maybe fixable? I keep telling my bum nephew he could take some of these old things, fix them up and maybe sell them for profit:
