Back to Gallery

c. 1928

Manufactured by Rudolph Wurlitzer Co. of North Tonawanda, NY.

Contains brass trumpets, several ranks of pipes, and traps.

This organ was voiced very loud and was intended for use on amusement park midways to play over the noise of the crowd. According to Wurlitzer’s advertising, “The cost of five musicians for evening sessions only will pay for this organ in a few weeks.”
