An as-yet unnamed Parisian pianist reportedly cycled up the Rue Richard Lenoir, just a short distance near the Bataclan Theater where one of the most violent of last night's attacks in Paris took place.

The pianist, who dragged a piano behind him on a bicycle, then played John Lennon's 1971 classic, Imagine, for a small gathered crowd of photographers and fellow Parisians. The piano itself had a peace symbol emblazoned along the top of it.

The Eiffel Tower / Peace Symbol has now spread across social media with many people simply posting the Jean Julien-designed image alongside tributes to the city. It's now understood that at least 80 people alone were murdered in the Bataclan Theater during an Eagles of Death Metal concert, bringing the death toll from last night's attacks to 127.
