Photograph by the Los Angeles Times

Here's the overall shot again. So far nobody has mentioned the item almost in the center of the photograph.
A piano bench and an old movie script. Voila!

At first I thought it was some sort of ledger. But on closer examination I decided it might be a script.

Below, here's what a 1940s movie script looked like in its original binder. (This is the script for the MGM production "The Arnelo Affair," dated Nov. 5, 1946, purchased by me at the Salvation Army store in Pasadena for $4. The binders, by the way, came from The Loose Leaf House, 1240 S. Main St.)
