Please subscribe to the above – can I ask if you had another picture in mind, as that is an odd place to put the one that's there?

smiley - ok Yes, please leave the one that's there, where it is. smiley - winkeye It's to show what the transposing keyboard and knob look like.

Here's a picture of Irving Berlin playing the piano. It's legal, from the Library of Congress. And it shows his hands on the black keys. smiley - laugh

Can you confirm whether both pictures came from the Library of Congress?
I've had to move one down a bit and make it central as it was conflicting with the top picture. I hope you don't mind.

smiley - laugh No, moving the picture was fine. It's there to show people how the mechanism looks, so as long as it's in the neighbourhood, we're in the clear.

The top photo is from the Library of Congress. The other one is by me - I nabbed a photo of a transposing piano from somewhere, cartoonised it, and isolated and blew up the operative bits. smiley - smiley
