I Knew a guy a few years back that would encounter old Pianos in his work. Apparently some are so far gone they can no longer be tuned, cracked frame for instance.
Esp. fun to shoot tho! We had a once a year piano shoot. We usually brought a bunch of other items too.
Worse part was cleaning up the big mess, which we did religiously. Like a campsite, we left the spot cleaner than before.
