Still in Paris and Other Miscellany August 20, 2011

  The Piano Shop on the Left Bank, Discovering a Forgotten Passion in a Paris Atelier, by Thad Carhart.  This is a gem of a book.  I just happened to pick it up from among my unreads – maybe because aforementioned family member is in Paris now.  (see previous blogs)

I’ll add a couple of other titbits here while I am at it.  Not related to Paris though, apart from the fact that the randonneur cyclist now in Paris is in the photo and flanked by his brothers.

  a rediscovered family photo.  Early 1980’s at the family farm in New Hampshire.

  a postcard which I found in a local community center.  It’s of an Appalachian Mountain Club hut, Lonesome Lake Hut, in Franconia Notch New Hampshire.  I wonder how old this postcard is. 1950’s (?)  It looks such an idyllic spot and so “New Hampshire”.
