Hallet Davis Factory – circa 1839Hallet, Davis & Co. can trace its origins to the year 1835. It was among the oldest of the historic Boston piano companies.Many world-famous pianists have chosen Hallet, Davis & Co. as their favorite piano. The world-renown composer Franz Liszt played on one at the great Paris exposition in 1867.Inspired by the love of the Piano. Also by the song “Quando quando quando” by Michael Buble’

Norwich is being demolished, sold off. This piano will be thrown in a dumpster soon. So sad how someone can just neglect and toss away a part of history. I am sure that this one piano touched some people that were patients there in a very close life changing way. I wonder how they feel knowing it will be thrown away in the trash soon…..

    Wonderful capture and composition; one can almost see the spirit of the old pianist waiting for a drink before playing the next tune.
