An advertisment for self playing pianos in the Spanish market. The lady "playing" the piano seemingly conjures up the ghost of Beethoven with the music. A player piano (also known as pianola, or autopiano) is a self-playing piano, containing a pneumatic or electro-mechanical mechanism that operates the piano action via pre-programmed music recorded on perforated paper, or in rare instances, metallic rolls. The rise of the player piano grew with the rise of the mass-produced piano for the home in the late 19th and early 20th century.
