James Turnbull in England - between the 1890's and in the beginning of the 1900's

from Reminiscences of a Stonemason, by a working man, page 253:

Time now seemed to fly past; my eldest son went to work in London for some time, and after he came back he married. Whilst never neglecting his handicraft, he has followed my advice and cultivated intellectual pursuits as a relaxation. An accomplished pianist, when I listen to his renderings of some of the standard overtures, I am doubly proud to think that the same hands can and do handle the tools of his trade.
