Flickr Find: Accordion Emergency

In Case of Emergency
uploaded by lizhenry
In case of a fire, businesses are required to have a fire extinguisher somewhere on the premises. Silicon Valley institution, Buck’s of Woodside, though, takes it a step further; they have a couple accordions secured behind glass with the message: “In case of emergency, break glass — save accordions.” That’s good advice for anyone, and part of the reason why, at our house, we keep the accordions near the door.


  1. Hey, that accordion has two piano keyboards!

  2. Oh, wait, no it doesn’t.
