Jean Cocteau in France - 1918
from Selected correspondence 1915-1963 / Francis Poulenc, page 26:
Here, at Monsieur Dumur's, the grocer, there is a wonderful mechanical piano player. You put in two sous and out come maritime operas: La Riviera- drums, shell-castanets, watery gurglings and marine tootings - quite a masterpiece.
