Wurlitzer 105 Band Organ

Model 105 Wurlitzer band organ, serial number 4069. Documents show a manufacture date of 5-24-1928 and it having been shipped to N. Tonawanda. The base and next layers of paint on this instrument were both stenciled “Allan Herschell Co”. Considering the shipping log, this organ most likely started out as carousel organ. It was restored to the original base layer paint. Plays 125 style rolls.

The audio you hear is of an original Wurlitzer Style 125 roll, Roll No. 3222. This is a march roll with only 6 tunes played at a 10-tune roll length, so each is rather lengthy. Tune #1 (Golden Plume March) was missing from the roll. The remaining 5 tunes are, in order, are:

2. With Flags Aloft (Spirit of West Point)
3. Paean Of Triumph
4. The Merrimac
5. The Marines’ Hymn
6. The Changing of the Guard
