Penny Lane [England] ~ The famous street (whose signage has sadly been stolen many a time) that inspired The Beatles' 1967 classic song. John Lennon's childhood home was near here, and he and Paul McCartney used to regularly meet up at the Penny Lane junction to head into town when they were just young lads long before rock'n'roll stardom.

Lyraflugel ~ This type of upright piano was made almost exclusively in Berlin between 1820 and 1850. The Lyraflügel was a fashionable fixture of middle-class Biedermeier parlors in northern German lands. In the period of the Napoleonic occupation (1806–13), the lyre had become a symbol of freedom and liberation. It was popularized in songs based on the collection of patriotic poems, With Lyre and Sword, by the poet Theodor Körner (1791–1813).
