As a matter of interest, when I was a wee lad, we had an old wood-framed piano
at home. This couldn't be tuned to 'modern' concert pitch and hanging on a hook
inside was a tuning fork marked 'C' 256 c/s (cycles per second). The keys were
genuine ivory, quite yellowed with age, and well worn too, with finger shaped
groves in the front lip of the most played ones.

Exchange them and we can both have a poem, a tune, and a song.
