Photographer's Note

I do not know , if this man still makes his job or even still alive !

İn fact I made this picture almost half a century ago.
He had a small shop in Urla, where he made, with some very simple tools and waste meterial (he collected from surrounding)toy pianos. They had just one octave and you could get correct sounds from them.
And at the evening he started to market and eventually sell them in the restaurants of te little harbour of Urla.

Once he was a good carpenter, but had lost his job and customers; and continued his life with making and selling of those toy-pianos.
Scanned from a b&w print. Therefore the quality is not optimum but an evidence of good old times !
