Piano, Alkabo, ND, 1994

This image is from the now abandoned Alkabo School in Alkabo, North Dakota. My wife's Uncle Kenny and his children went to school there. It closed in the late 1960s. There are three rooms. The gym is in the basement. I was fascinated by the silence of this old piano and couldn't help wondering how long it had sat still, quiet and how many hands had graced its keys.
