Today I had a chance to meet John Sykes. A couple of years ago, he painstakingly renewed the faded advertisement on the side of his barn. Doylemanx Piano was located in Elmira in the early part of the 20th Century, but this barn is located in the Village of Millport facing what used to be the Chemung Canal. If you travel north on Route 14, you just might catch a glimpse of this unique tribute to our past.
Thanks to John and his wife, Jessica, for sharing this story. I have met so many wonderful people as I campaign throughout the First District.
