Vintage cartoon

Came across this cartoon which I cut out from the Daily Mirror about 40 years ago - I still think it's funny.

Lance, This cartoon is so funny. I think perhaps this is where I'm missing out when I practise my keyboard from my 'Piano Lessons Book One.' The book is by Fanny Waterman and someone else. I believe Fanny Waterman died recently - I wonder how many keybordists in Jazz have her to thank for basic lessons?

PS from Ann Alex. I think I'm wrong about Fanny Waterman being dead. I believe she was on 'Desert Island Discs' the other week but perhaps it amounts to the same thing!
