I visited Union Station earlier today to snap some photos of the historic Kansas City train station turned would-be tourist attraction. Once inside the main hall, I heard the tinkling of an old-timey bar-room piano.
As if drawn by a phantasmal force, my feet led me toward the sound, and soon I was standing before the strange, musical automaton. And lo, I realized that this was no ordinary baby grand but was, in fact, The World’s Loneliest Piano. I produced my video iPhone and captured a snippet of the ghostly pathos.
