…maybe not, I had forgotten that there is at least some of the rest of an upright piano in pieces up there too. But the keys in the basket are in various stages of having been repainted where veneer chipped off etc.
Maybe I’ll work up the nerve to ask my neighbor, who grew up in this house, if he knows anything about it. Like, I don’t think it was a “don’t want to pay somebody to haul this old piano away” situation, they would have just thrown it outside (going by other evidence)
