Maggie’s parlor contained a “grand” piano and a bed. Simple and functional though it was, it would have been a place of family gatherings in the evening. And my aunt tells me where all the cousins would sleep when everyone came to visit. Even though the parlor depicted here is much finer than Maggie’s would have been, it depicts the quiet serenity of sitting with your family on a peaceful evening listening to a lovely song. I imagine the woman at the piano to be Maggie, the gentleman in the chair her husband James, and the curly haired girl to be one of their six girls whom they loved dearly.
