Failing to install PIP for Python 2.7 on Mac OSX

Simply, the situation is that pip is not present on one of my Macs (running Sierra, so a couple of versions behind), and easy_install:

$ sudo easy_install pip

does not work. A moderate amount of searching - not in top results, that is - found the SO post easy_install pip fails on MAC OSX and answer, which is:

$ curl | python

The answer on SO derives from the (longer) SO post Not able to install Python packages ....

Thanks to user3678525 and Anupam.
