Frosting

In Nevada that dusting of every inch of limbs, etc., is called Pogonip. Never heard the term used anywhere else.

EBANK SONAIP

The Pianist rises, with his back to the Knabe keyboard, and announces "now I will play 'Minuetto al Roverso' by Haydn, backwards".

Moonlight tower

The framework at upper right is the base of a moonlight tower. There is another one in the distance, next to the buildings to the right of the image.

Schwankovsky Temple of Music

The sign at the middle right is for the Schwankovsky Temple of Music and Knabe pianos. F. J. Schwankovsky sold pianos from the Queen Anne-style building until 1920, when Wright-Kay Jewelers took it over. You can still see little gold treasure chests (their trademark) on the side of the building.

Knabe Pianos is still in business.
