Jack Brymer in South Shields - between 1920 and 1921

from Beginnings and Endings, pages 14-15:

The strange thing was that in spite of its ill-fitting pads and its disastrously loose keys, the instrument did play, and in a few weeks I had learnt all the best tunes in the big red folder on the piano-top - 'In a Monastery Garden', 'Songs of Araby', 'Softly Awakes my Heart' - and even the chorale bit from the 'Zampa' overture.
