Uncle John at LL
Here is an undated photo of Dr. John Holyoke Nichols sitting in the Locust Lawn mansion in Danvers. His piano is in the foreground, right. That piano was later moved to the parlor in Pine Knoll, the Nichols family home where John and his siblings (including my grandfather) had been raised, and where I frequently visited in my childhood. Unfortunately I never had a chance to visit this Locust Lawn mansion, which existed from 1856 to 1944.
