  • Description

    LIFE IN A BIG AND MODERN CITY OFTEN HAS ITS DISCOMFORTS - INCLUDING ITS NOISE. THE PEOPLE OF AYLESFORD STREET IN THE LONDON AREA OF PIMLICO BELIEVE THEY ARE GETTING MORE THAN THEIR FAIR SHARE OF THE CITY'S SOUND. THEY ENDURE THE CEASELESS DRONE OF TRAFFIC THROUGHOUT THE DAY TIME, AND AT NIGHT THE ALMOST NON-STOP TINKLING OF PIANO MUSIC.

    THE PIANO APPEARED PARKED IN AYLESFORD STREET WHEN THE RENOVATING OF A BASEMENT FLAT WAS BEGUN RECENTLY.

    SINCE THEN, NO ONE HAS CLAIMED IT, AND ALL ATTEMPTS BY RESIDENTS OF THE STREET PERSUADE SOMEONE TO TAKE IT AWAY HAVE FAILED.

    EVON LONDON'S ROVING JUNK COLLECTORS HAVE GIVEN THE INSTRUMENT ONLY CURSORY GLANCES AS THEY PASS IT BY, INDICATING, PERHAPS, A DECLINE IN THE DEMAND FOR ABANDONED PIANOS.

    THE RESIDENTS OF THE STREET DON'T OBJECT TO THE PIANO DURING THE DAY, WHEN THE OFF-KEY PLAYING BY WOULD-BE BUSKERS IS DROWNED BY THE NOISE OF TRAFFIC. IT IS THE NIGHT-TIME CONCERTOS WHICH ECHO UP AND DOWN THE STREET UNTIL DAWN THAT THEY DON'T APPRECIATE.

    THE DISCORDANT NOTES OF THE PIANO ARE UPSETTING THE HARMONY OF THE LIVES OF THE PEOPLE OF AYLESFORD STREET.
