The piano pictured is the 1903 Steinway grand, which is owned by Mr. Joseph Stone of Natchez, Mississippi. It is photographed in the Natchez Antebellum home which has been in his family for several generations, since early 1800s. Mr. Stone, an accomplished pianist, operates a bed and breakfast inn at his home (The Joseph Newman Stone House - Natchez, MS), and generously entertains his guests with intimate salon performances.
