Bob from Cincinnati Piano Tuning contacted Bob Pierce about computerizing his sourcebook of piano maker history and serial numbers. 12th edition
The idea to create a digital gallery of pictures started when Bob from Cincinnati Piano Tuning purchased a $500 Blackberry mobile phone that had a auto focus lens to capture images and then zoom in to see details.
Bob has collected a library of pictures with close up logos of the various brand name pianos worked on over the past six years. A sample is shown in the slide show to your left.
