This week Naomi relocated from Oatlands to Sisters Beach permanently. Neither of us had time to take a lot of photos of the loading or unloading because a) we were busy and b) it was raining pretty much the whole time. However, it did stop towards the end of the unloading so I thought that you might be interested in the journey of Naomi’s piano which was the last thing out of the truck.
As you can see it took four men to move it safely from the truck to the house. Here it is in position.
The candelabra that are mounted on the piano were packed separately and have not been put back yet but this is how it usually looks.
It is quite an interesting old piano which Naomi was told is from the Edwardian era so over a hundred years old now. It is iron framed and was made in New York and sent to Launceston. Naomi bought it at an antique shop in Ross some years ago but has never been able to find out much about the maker. Inside the piano it says R Stenmar, New York. She even contacted the website of a piano museum about it sending them all the information she had but they didn’t know either. So if anyone knows anything about R Stenmar of New York we would love to know.
