    • 1954, Alexander Alderson, chapter 1, in The Subtle Minotaur[1]:
      No light showed, but someone there was playing the piano. The strange elusiveness of the soft, insistent melody seemed to draw her forward. She walked across the tow path to the neat green wicket gate and stepped through into the tiny garden.
